F800 GS engine rattling noise while engine is cold, anyone?

I have this engine rattling noise since day one. Seems like something loose on the top of the engine, mainly right side; but after complete warm up or few miles the noise is almost gone. I red several threads in the F800 forum about this topic, but no fix to this problem or idea what is the origin. I would like to follow up the issue on bikes with few thousand miles. Also, there was told that may be the noise was part of the brake in period. I just wonder if any of you guys is having the same noise and any idea of the source or fix.. Thanks...

Yeah, I know the noise. I commented on it right away to my dealer, the mechanic there said it was top-end valve train noise from insufficient oil in the head on start-up which would go away when warm. It does go away, but I'm not entirely thrilled about it.

However, with 800 miles on, it seems to be diminishing.

My friends had a rattle clicking noise, I isolated it down to the fuel injectors. Just a thought.

I doubt that is the case. After an oil and filter change their is a lot of noise from the top until the oil filter is filled and lubricant circulates. Because the oil filter attaches vertically there is no way to fill the filter before installing it on the bike like you can on a 12GS. The sound goes away in a matter of a second or two.

I do not have the sound described in this thread or I am not noticing it - could be either. I will pay close attention next time a take the bike out. I have about 3000 miles on it.

Yup from what I've seen its a common chraracteristic of the twin engine.
It does diminish as the bike runs in
