Severe problem... Please help!!!

I have a '07 with 9500 miles and I have a major problem. Was driving home from friends house today and was going approximately 60mph. Bike lost power for apparently no reason. Then began to make a god awful noise. sounds like something broken inside motor, bad ticking and only half the power as usual.. I have not done my do hickey yet. Could this be the cause of my problem. Could the time chain come that loose to make the noise?? All suggestions will be greatly appreciated. As of now, my only recourse is to take to the shop and I really don't want to have to.

No way to figure it out over the internet.. Pretty sure you'll have to do some engine cover removing to see what the issue is, and go from there.

+1 Too many possibilities. First thing I'd do is drain the oil, look for signs in it since your gonna be removing cover anyways.
