Knock Knock

My 03 R6 has metal knock knock noise when driving in gear more noticeable on take off from the light or stop sign, this started after I let my co-worker take it to his mechanic friend to do a coolant change and fix a oil leak, the oil leak was coming from the right hand side engine cover gasket, I took it to a shop in the Katy/Cypress are and they tightened the drive chain, that didn't help. Can any think of what is causing the knock knock noise

only when moving? how many miles does the chain and sprockets have on them? if they are worn out, no amount of tightening will fix that

not saying that this is what your problem is, but it's about time for a chain and sprocket set. look here http://www.canyonchasers.net/shop/generic/chain.php it is a good article and will help in the future. once a chain starts wearing, it will be hard to keep it adjusted, it will makes noise and if neglected, it eventually may break. not saying you are at this point, but knowledge is power. best bet may be to take it to patrick and let him give you a heads up on what it is.

22K seems like alot on the chain, especially if you haven't been maintaining it well, but you said the knocks ONLY came after coworker did the work? As in right before that it wasn't doing it?

It could easily be related to the chain and sprockets.
