BMW K1200GT Engine noise?

My GT has an audible 'clank' when the engine is hot/idling. This disappears completely as soon as the revs are increased slightly and the bike performs very well. A BMW mech listened, didn't bat an eyelid before saying 'don't worry it's normal for these engines'. Has anyone else experienced this? Did you manage to do anything about it? I've listened with a stethascope/probe and the noise seems to come from the cylinder head near No1 exhaust valve, although it's not audible on the exhaust pipe itself. Just bugs the life out of me and I'd like to eliminate it. The bike is running on the recommended mineral oil as stated in handbook. Help!
