Read missing at 6000 to 7000 RPM
You are not alone with a noisy tensioner, I remember reading, recently, about similar issues. Backing off the tension may lessen the noise, but will introduce missing at higher RPMs. If you have the talent to back off the tension, call your dealer and ask them to send you a replacement bearing, then bring in the suspect part.
If they refuse call the roadside assistance number 1-800-234-1353 and ask them to transport your machine to the dealer, ultimately they may "get the message".
Sorry to hear you are having this issue.
