Don't worry about the "click" noise as you turn the motor over- that's normal. As far as the noise at start up, it could be a loose cam chain tensioner but it could also be coolant in the oil. Like someone else said, the coolant has to be going somewhere! First thing I would do is pull the filter and check the condition of it and the oil. My 950 will flicker here and there and I'll get some clatter from the cam chain, especially when the oil is about due to be changed. Low RPM's at idle can also be a culprit. RPM's should be around 1400 as I recall.
