Dirt bike transmission noise?

I just bought my first dirt bike. I guess it’s actually a pit bike, ssr 125 w/clutch,  but I bought to learn on. Not my first motorcycle I own a cbr 600rr and 1000rr.... I’ve noticed a really terrible noise in 3rd gear. For the life of me I can’t figure this one out. Riding it the noise is loud sounds like Metallic chatter, but I took the chain off and shifted up to 3rd gear and nothing sounds great. Does anyone else have a pit bike and have run into this?

    "and shifted up to 3rd gear and nothing sounds great" Do you mean it sounds worse when you took the chain off?

    You have an issue with your tire. They are likely low pressure, or your seat may be bad. Instructions will be under the handlebar, so check under it to fix your tire pressure
