Hard to tell without listening to the noise, could be a chain tensioner. Or a valve way out of adjustment.

I had a 2000 zx 7r and loved it.

Like everyone else its to tell without hearing it. but i can tell you this much from owning one they have really good timing chain and tensioner setups...they are tough to break,wearout but they could. if its the chain at idle it will be a constant rattle. if its a on and off knock rod or valve..best guess without hearing it.................look for a replacement engine JUST in case...................know what bike your looking at... looks nice..good luck
