Sounds like my old Nighthawk!

Yeah, that's a bit excessive for whine. It's probably the camchain, but also probably harmless.

Did it grow louder with time (thousands of miles) or did it get loud over the course of a few hundred miles, or did it suddenly start doing it?

Well, that noise seems to be coming from your crankcase cover area. The clutch assembly, oil pump, primary and sub gears, drive sprocket, drive chain, etc are all in that area. Let's start easy in what type and weight oil are you using? Does the sound change when you pull the clutch lever in? What about in gear? If it diminishes, it may be the needle bearing or lifter plate bearing. Could also be worn chain noise or gear mesh. Hard to tell without actually disassembling and doing a visual.

When you pull the clutch the sound gets higher when you let go the pitch is lower. The more rpm the higher pitched the noise the oil im not sure of because I just bought the bike im giing to do an oil change soon so ill be able to tell you then what weight of oil would you recommend the book says 5w40 or 10w40 the bike does have 60,000 k on it by the way.

Hmm, well for oil lots of people here will recommend Rotella T6 5w40 (yes, diesel oil), including me. Search for topics on this here; lots of them. It "could" make a difference with the sound, but that sound is more bearing-ish. BUT, it could be the oil that is currently in it. At the risk of telling you how to spend your money, try an oil change so you know what's in it. Go from there; you can always reuse the oil.

Oh I'm a fan of that! ... Funny, as a teenager I would always tell my dad about funny noises with any car I had. He always replied with, "Just turn up the radio; problem solved."
