Welcome to the forum! These things do rattle a lot, most of the noise is the clutch rollers at rest, they have just enough room to vibrate creating noise. As to your motor, drain the oil, check for any metal. If you have good compression chances are the top end is good. Pull the rocker arm cover and see if it had good lubrication. The bottom end on these are splash fed, so low oil may have been your issue. I'd recommend a good wet clutch compatible synthetic 10/40, or 20/50 oil. There is a sump at the bottom of the motor held on with 4 torx bolts, any broken parts usually end it here, plus it is recommended you clean the screen every 6 months or so.
