05 ticking question

I pulled off at a track day becuase the bike lost power and would cut out and sputter a bit. I pulled into the pits and heard a ticking up near the intake and head. It has 7900 mi and is very well taken care of. Checked around the exhaust and it sounds back further. At idle it will tick and sputter with a slight backfire every now and then.

Hopefully not valves......

Any ideas?

It looks like the exhaust servo is on the rear of the bike?
