Doesn't really sound any worse than any CRF I've heard. My '02 was especially crunchy sounding. These SOHC cylinder heads are not as quiet as the DOHC bikes.

No, that is not normal, double check your timing.

Decompression gap adjustment . There was a guy on here that had the same noise about 6 months ago after full rebuild I,m unshore how he fixed it

My 02' ticks like that as well, my son in-law who's an MMI graduate

and works at a Honda dealership said, "it's normal for the early CRFs"

that the decompression mechanisms, while not always, do tend too be noisy.

My suspension guy at Pro Action also told me the exact same thing so...

I just quit worrying about it.

It's hard to tell what an engine sounds like in a video but that seems abnormally loud but the bikes seems to run decent. Get proof/receipts for the rebuild or walk away.
