You probably have a little wear on the engine bearings. I wouldn't worry about it much but put a little lucas oil treatment in it(10% of capacity) so the bearings will have a little lube remaining until the oil pressure comes up. My 83 1100 did that and I put a spin on filter adapter on it so it wouldn't take as long for the oil pressure to build. That lessened it from a few seconds to just a couple of knocks.

my friends 1100 would do that. i think it started when he ran it with 5 or 6 litters of oil i guess that damaged something.

Gidday,

Yeh my 86 aspy does the same, only happens when she is cold, turn the motor over a few times with the kill switch on, before starting seems to help.

not too much, maybe 4 to 6 turns, I wouldn't try this if the battery is suspect, or too much might flood her. I have an odyssey installed, which has some grunt.


good luck,
