Brand new engine noise

So i just got my 2021 Raptor and have done a few break in rides. As i understand theres alot of differing opinions on the break in. However, i decided to kind of take the middle ground on it not full baby but not full throttle.

Anyway, a few times now i've given it a little extra throttle, not full or even past half mind you, usually coming out of a turn to try and throw some dirt. It makes a weird cranking noise which is scaring me. I know the brand new engine needs to shake off the rust and loosen up a little but is this cause for concern? Someone tell me its ok please haha

Run it hard, if it breaks now it's Yamaha's problem.
But, you're probably hearing the chain.
