Metal tick when first starting

Hello i have a 2010 Yamaha r6 and when I first start it after sitting for 20-30 minutes or even some cold starts for not even a second there is a tiny metal knock/tick. The bike runs and rides great and doesn’t make any sounds while riding just for the split secound when cold starting does anyone know if that is normal or what it could be thank you.

Make sure the oil level and weight is good. You can turn off the fuel injectors during crank by holding throttle to 100%, BEFORE beginning and during the crank. Does it make any noise during an extended crank? Does priming the engine with the extended crank first, eliminate the noise on start?

It could just be your cam chain slapping.
