Noisy motor when first started

I have 2015 vrod that I just bought with 1800 miles on it. When it sets over night the motor seems noisy to me when first started . It's been several years since I have had a vrod with stock exhaust, so I don't remember how they should sound. The oil dummy light goes out before the engine starts and the noise only last for maybe a second. Then it's good to go all day long until it sets over night. The motor is smooth as butter. Thanks guys

Pretty normal.

You may find that changing oil to something like Amsoil 20W-50 may help.

An oil that 'stay' longer on the surfaces will help keep parts lubricated at the startup, before the oil makes it to the top end.

Thanks man I was thinking that, but it's been so long since I have heard one a with stock exhaust I was wondering if it's normal. When I get back home my 2into1 will be there with the tuner and I won't hear it anymore.
