Does this happen right upon startup, or after you've been riding a while? Can you tell if it's from the top or bottom of the engine?

Technically true, I'm told- but probably has more to do with how it runs, as exhaust pulses help pull the next cycle's exhaust out of the combustion chamber. Makes it pretty loud, I'll bet!
