What do you mean start up alarm..I hear a cam chain rattle....thats not ideal but if it goes away after a few seconds its not an emergency.... how many miles on the bike...?  how is the oil? is it a quality oil? what about the service history....? Might just be  lazy tensioner or it could be the beginning signs of bad maintenance habits

Yes the cam chain tensioner takes a sec to quiet down after start up.  Apparently it relies on oil pressure and males a lot of noise which very shortly goes away.  Most agree it's nothing to worry about.  I have the same bike & it's been doing the same thing all the time I've owned it.

The cam chain noise is normal for any bikes with a hydraulic cam chain tensioner.   It takes a moment for them to fill with oil so they make noise for a bit.    Don't worry about it at all.

and this is precisely why we say "please shoot some video" good job right there. because had you posted the "startup alarm. please help" without this video that'd have gone precisely nowhere.

like everybody else said, that's the sound from the cam-chain tensioner. don't worry about it at all. there's nothing wrong with your bike. enjoy it.  :821:
