Did you have the clutch apart? If so take cover off and double check it. Maybe when slipping the clutch the rpms are dropping enough to activate the auto decompression and that is what you hear. Just a quick guess. Good luck.

when filling the transmission side always put 700 cc in, for some reason they call for like 650cc, the extra seems to quite things down
