Welcome to the forum Brit, sounds like your cam chain tensioner is a bit noisy (a common complaint), not really a problem until the noise doesn`t go away when warm. You can try 20w-50 heavier than standard oil to help quieten it down a bit.

You may want to sync the carbs to smooth it out.
If they are out it will rattle.
