When I start my KTM, it makes an irritating sound. I think it is going to blow up, but after a few seconds the noise goes away. Is something wrong?

No, there is nothing wrong with your motorcycle. KTM's hydraulic camshaft chain tensioner takes a few seconds to build pressure in the system. Once the hydraulic pressure catches up, the slapping camshaft chain noise goes away. No problems – of course if the sound is too loud you should let your dealer look at it... just to be safe...
