Glitter in the oil very worried 馃槦

So picked up this bike a short while ago 4200 miles on the clock full service history, loads of paperwork. When I got the bike the oil was over filled by about 300ml so sucked some out. It has a tick and reading about 675s ticking it seems its common they tick. Changed the cct spring made no difference, still ticked. Rode this bike about 150 miles, it performs fine and is in mint condition.
Changed the oil + filter and found it had quite alot of glitter in the oil. Bike had oem oil filter & oil seemed fine apart from the glitter, its gold color oil so guessing its semi.

2009 street triple r 4340 miles

Here is vid engine sound just before oil change. Hard to hear the tick (just hear it in the background) but its more noticeable stood next to the bike.

Glitter in oil is def a sign of metal in it, send it to a lab so you know which part is rubbing off, also - that rattle may be from the cam chain tensioner, either change it yourself ( there's a video with a street triple on youtube ) or bring it in to the shop to get it done, shouldnt be too expensive, its an easy fix
