I'm getting a sort of a fizzy rattle for a second or so when the engine starts. Sounds like the starter maybe isn't disengaging as soon as the engine fires, doesn't happen every time - more often when warm. Engine starts right up evey time, valve adjust and cam chain adjust are correct.
Should I worry?

xs is infamous for starter gear problems, mikes xs sells a kit to take care of it if that indeed is your problem,there's also a little clip that can be moved to help out,if you go to mikes website its actually there somewhere with instructions how to fix it, might be here in the vault also.
