Hi
Have anyone had the same as my bike, (K1200S 082005), rattle at start up? Seems to comes from the cam chain area and stops rattling and sounds normal afther 2-3sek. I think the sounds disappear when oil pressure is ok. Will it damage the engine? Do i have to get it fixed?

I think this engine uses a hydraulic cam tensioner which will make the noise you are hearing untill pressure builds. Not to worry.
