I have a 2019 KTM that has about 12 hours, I’m having a weird noise in the engine as soon as I start it for about one maybe two seconds. Just wondering if this was normal. It sounds like it’s coming from the clutch side. My friend also has a 2019 350 and his did the same thing but quit after about 15 hours. Just want to get some thoughts.

Not the cam chain tensioner slapping from lack of oil pressure? Pretty common with KTM...

X2 with monk, get yourself a dirt tricks cam tensioner and that will take care of start up chain slap
