05 K12S rumbling

A couple of days ago I started up my 05 K12S the engine had a rumbling sound at the start. Shortly after it was fine. It had never done that before. The bike has 15k on it. Should I get it checked out?

Probably cam chain slack. There is an upgraded tensioner and guides now. Get them installed ASAP.
