Tapping noise on start up!

I have just had my '10 St R, 1 year service, the bike has only done 3000 miles. When I took the bike from the garage last week everything was running fine, no strange noises on cold start up.

I started it up last night and this morning an at cold start up there is a really loud tapping noise coming from the engine. I am aware that its most probably the tappets making this noise, the engine is warm theres no tapping.

Not sure if this is anything but for some time, I have had 2 header bolts missing, they must have worked their way loose from when the garage fitting my low boy, these are now replaced.

So, my question. Is this normal? Will the noise go or just get worse? Should I just get the bike down to the garage quick smart.

ive got the same problem, except have the stock exhaust, never had it off.

sounds like its an exhaust leak due to the fact its only there depending on how cold it is and it disappears within a few seconds of starting. Ive checked the tension on all the header bolts but they all seem tight.

might have to look into it a bit more

Im not sure about the exhaust leak as the bike has come straight from the garage to home after they have done their service adding the nuts. So Im hoping that the exhaust is secure.

we should take bets and see what it is. My bet is the cam chain tensioner.

I think it would be more ironic if I was made of iron

I have similar. I think it is normal when the bike is cold. Not sure what the root cause is. Maybe something to do with the oil being cold and not circulating as well...?

I would agree somewhat that there is some tapping noise. This noise was really loud, like a what the fck is happening in the engine sounds like some monkeys hammering inside there sort of a noise.

The weird thing is that I only bought the bike last year this time and rode it through winter, never heard this really loud tapping.

Just called the dealer and they said that they would adjust it for me Sat.

I have just found a video with the noise. Sounds like this at start up! What should I do sounds like a dealer job right?

Ya I read somewhere else that it is the CCT and it is because the oil isn't warm and hasn't gotten to it yet.

I believe, as long as the noise goes away when the bike is warm, then there is nothing to worry about.
