Exclamation Grinding noise when revving up

Good day y'all i have a problem but im not sure in which sub-forum it falls under (engine, drivetrain, etc) so i thought of posting it here. Any help would be incredibly appreciated, so here goes...

Lately i have noticed that my Sportster (2017 XL883N) has developed a slight grinding noise coming from either, inside the tank or the engine.
When i rev-up i can hear a slight grinding/buzzing sound.
It is more pronounced when i pull the clutch (after revving high) and chop the throttle so that the engine disengages from the transmission and the engine is quieter. Doing so, i can hear the sound for a second or so, before it disappears

If i were to describe it, it would be as if the fuel pump is left running high for that split second of quietness before it stops; a slight metallic grinding sound.

Again, im just guessing that this may be coming from the fuel pump.

Has anyone else come across a similar situation?

Thanks
Chris

How many miles are on the bike currently? First thing I would check is your Primary Chain and make sure it's not too loose, if it just adjust it into spec

Hi do you have the stock Clutch pack?
I was hearing some noise before it failed.
