I have a 2009 GSX-R600. It has 200 miles on it and it makes this slight tick noise. I've been doing the break in procedure so it's not like i've been out hot rodin it. It makes the noise if its hot or cold and it makes it just sitting there and while driving. Any advise or ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Where is the ticking noise coming from?? With such a new bike you shouldnt have any problems with it. You still have the warranty?

Its prob the timing cam chain tensioner. its a common sound for the GSXR.. no worries at all but you do have the warranty. since you've prob bought this from a dealership, good luck not paying an hourly rate for them to look. i wouldnt worry about it. ive owned 3 gsxr's and i know exactly what sound ur hearing.

If the ticking sounds like a bomb don't ride it :D
It's a high performance engine man. I'm figuring you have never had a high performance engine between your legs before. Then there is changing the oil. Break in is the mileage mark or a few months which ever comes first is best. You can always change the oil again after once for time and then again for mileage of break in. Oil gets funky with the junk being scrubbed off from maching marks and fresh baked parts residue washing into the oil. It gets the bearing grease lube from assembly mixed into the oil too so eh. Engine makes the noise anyway. Some times it is a good clue it would be nice to change the oil though when there's an extra amount of clicking from the valves. But did I mention its a high performance engine :D
Try visiting a drag race strip and get near the cars or bikes when they are idling. You'll hear a lot more ticking than your bike.
