Knock-like sound? Engine problem. Help!

I can't figure out what this is. I've done lots of searches but nothing comes up where it only makes the noise for just a bit on startup. It Seems to only "knock" when oil is in the pan, goes away after five seconds and it'll need to sit (not run) for at least 10, maybe 15 minutes before it'll make the sound again. Makes no difference warm or cold. Sticky valve lifters maybe? I only have guesses. Thanks for any help.

2007 with Only 9,000 miles. Oil is good. No engine modifications.


I stopped the video when the sound went away

have you tried checking your oil pressure? Just take it to a shop and ask for that. It could be anything really but you need to experiment. Does it go away if you pull the clutch? Does it make the sound in lower higher revs etc.

I am by no means an expert, but that's how I try to understand where issues come from.

I have not checked oil pressure yet.

Its hard to experiment because it goes away so quickly and I'll have to wait another 5 minutes for oil to drain back into the pan. I have changed the oil and filter. Clutch makes no difference either.

Oil pressure doesn't look to be the issue. Any other ideas?

I suppose that is good news as it is a strong indication that the crankshaft and rod fixings are good. I'm out of ideas mate

I'm using 10-30 HP4S with an oem filter. I took the bike in for inspection and the mechanic said its the cct. ~$85 in parts and ~$450 for the labor. I'd do the work myself but I'd rather not risk my engine. Too many horror stories.

$450 for labor is way to steep for the 20 minutes it's going to take them to replace it
