My guess is when the engine is shout off whatever valves that are under spring pressure will bled off over time and will have a air pocket that will take a short time move on out.

The Royals Star engine is nothing like the Liner engine. But, there have been a very few early Liners with lifters collapsing while setting. They quiet down as soon as the oil pumps them back up. Yamaha repaired the ones I know of under warrenty. The charge I saw to Yamaha was just under $700.

I think Royalstars have a five year warrenty? I would talk to your dealer.
