On starting there is a knocking /rattle coming from the offside , it stops at 2000+ revs

Pretty typical of the four cylinder 'Wings to make an awful rattle and knock at idle, especially when you hit the throttle at low rpms when the carbs are our of synchronization or balance. If the engine runs okay other than that and you don't hear the rattle at higher rpms odds are a synch will cure it.

Most likely it is the primary chain that you are hearing. That is common with these bikes. There is no way to adjust it but if the carbs are out of sync the noise can be exagerated. I would sart with a good carb sync as already suggested by you and Picasso. Usually the better tuned the engine is the less noise/rattle you will hear......
