Weird sound sportsman 2011 800 efi

Hello all! Is this noise normal that seems to be coming from gear selectors side from engine? In video it somehow boosts the sound, its not that loud what it sounds, however it is clearly hearable. 170 hours on the clock.

Sounds a little louder then normal but that could be the video, mic, speaker. Did it just all of a sudden get louder?

In video its louder then in real life, alltough you can hear it if you are 10 meters away from engine. Also its cold engine on that, could be piston slap? I have not investigated it when hot. I have not paid attention to that till just few days ago, but that doesnt mean that it wasnt there allways

Only for about a month, and driven maybe 5-6 hours max. Everything looks clean and tidy around the engine. I was planning taking it to a dealer for 200hrs service before winter, so should i ask opinion from them? When i called i mentioned about clicking sound, he told me that some of them just do that noise.

Ok so it's starting to make a little more sense!!! Keep an eye on it, make sure your oil level is good, but that's how they are a little loud!!! No big deal!!

Oh no... the dreaded 800 ticking on the right side of the engine? They all do it.

Yep, sounds like every Polaris I've been around. When I first bought mine back in '05, I suspected something was wrong .. but it ran strong, so I left it alone. 14 years, 1,100 miles, and 240 hours later, I sold it, still running like a top.

If you're worried about it, an easy thing you can do for piece of mind is to cut the old oil filter open after you change oil, and look for shiny junk down in the filter pleats. I used to do this every time I changed oil on the quad I used to have.
