The cam chain should last 50K-100K miles? The problem is more likley to be the cam chain tensioner which is not that difficult to replace

I had a chain wear out at 12,000 miles so it can be your chain. It will make a clicking sound. All you have to do is check your chain with your hand if it moves side to side its time for a new chain. Also check the rollers in the chain they should be solid and not spin with your fingers.

valve adjustemnt lately? could be a ticking valve. Otherwise when a cam chain tensioner goes bad you'll know it. It goes and allows the chain to slap around inside and it sounds like yer motor is coming apart. Just so you know all kaw motors i've ever been around have a light clicking to them when they are at idle.

would this explain why i only hear this noise when i come off the gas? i know kwaka motor's are generly bullet proof so do you think i should just stop worrying and get on with riding? i was about to sell it and have a 04 sv650s any comments on that?
