Weird Grinding noise 6-7k rpms

Earlier today I noticed a very weird grinding noise between 6 and 7 thousand RPMs . I only have <900 miles on it currently. I'm going to take it to the shop on tuesday. Will I have to pay for this since my bike is still nearly brand new and under warranty? Anyone else have a weird sound/grinding noise/ tinfoil crinkling type sound between 6-7k RPMS?
It does it in 1st and 2nd gear. I just had my First Service done @610 miles and they used Yamalube. I was not able to try higher gears since I would be doing above the speed limit

I've never had that, but I haven't bothered getting a first service yet even though I'm close to 2000 miles.
Did you notice it before the first service? Can you tell I'm paranoid?

Are you feeling any odd power loss or vibration? That's the range where I'll get clutch lever, peg and seat buzz but then everything smooths right out by 8k. 5 - 8k seems to be a harmonic rough zone.

Not really its more of just like sounds like a failed gear shift, grinding gears, but i wasnt shifting I normally shift at like 3-4k because I use it to commute often, or I take her for quick bursts to 10k rpms once in awhile in the back roads. But I was in first, left a red light, and opened her and stopped when i heard/felt it. It was fine over and under 6-7 but something in that range was not smooth. I kept doing it trying to pinpoint the source to no avail. I havent really opened her up but once or twice over 5-6k rpms since the oil change because I just commute/daily ride through town.

I was under the impression that getting the service done at 600 miles, or close to it, was a pretty critical oil change for the engine? I could definitely tell the difference afterwards.

Doesn't sound good. Have you checked the oil are you loosing any?
Does it do it if you hold those revs whilst stationary. Most strange

I know it´s a long shot. But could it be a combination of snatchy throttle response and a VERY loose chain?

I did the oil change myself (@ 578, and again at 1678). The dealership was booked up pretty solid.

I've botched a shift or two and heard that noise, if I was hearing THAT while not shifting I'd want the dealer to hear it.
