I know what you mean. You may want to try and find you a good Honda manual. They are a great asset when it comes down to these things.

I would try tightening the automatic cam chain tensioner manually to see if the noise goes away , if it's been noisy long the cam chain could be stretched and need replacing .. Don't remove the tensioner just remove the bolt in the center of it ..

Here's a picture of the tensioner assy ..
