When cold especially and on stand ,upon start ups ,I hear a noise for several seconds,like oil starvation.My mechanic told me tha it is normal and all do that.
I use 10-40 full synthetic oil.The lesser noise was with Ipone Katana and Bardhall and the most withYamalube.I think that the oil does not circulate fast enough and is then that is worst time for the engine.
Any thoughts?

It could be the timing chain tensioner, mine very rarely makes a slight rattle. I seriously doubt that oil pressure takes several seconds to build. If it does you have a problem.
