2010 f800gs "clicks" at low rpm

I have a 2010 f800gs with 9.5k miles on it. I got it four months ago with 8.5k miles on it. I took it offroad(nothing serious a small suv could've gone down these trails) for the first time and the bike did great, never dropped it. Put the bike in the garage and went away for 4 days. when i took it out on a strictly street ride today, about two miles into the ride i noticed the bike started click at low rpm. After doing different things to learn more this is what I can tell you : It only does it during acceleration below 3000 rpm. If at a light in neutral i can rev it and the noise isn't there. If going down the road and pull in the clutch the noise doesn't occur. if I accelerate slowly from a light the noise does not occur. The noise is heavy enough I can feel it in the foot pegs. Since the noise only happens while i'm driving the bike I have a hard time hearing where it comes from. If anyone has any ideas on what this might be I would appreciate any insight available. Thanks

Tighten your chain to spec.

Don't make me go all Loutre on you Fred.

Chains loose and the front sprocket is worn. Seems unlikely at that mileage but it does quack like a duck.

Thanks guys, the teeth on the front sprocket don't look waved out so I don't think it's worn but the chain does seem loose. I will let you know after I adjust and ride it.
