    02 xr400 clicking sound?

    hi guys ive just bought a 2002 xr 400 with 2000 kms on the clock,, when i start it cold it clicks very loudly at idle when its still under its normal warmer idle operating speed , if i accel it a little say to 1500rpm it totally goes away and when it warms up a little it goes away all together,, is this something to do with the automatic decompressor sort of working because of the low idle speed or should i be more worried. Thanks in advance for any help,, cheers Marty
