That's the first thing that I would think of doing as well - changing the filter and the oil. If the filter is defective or the oil reached its shear point and has broken down a bit who knows what sounds that would cause. The initial oil in the bike is non-synthetic and once you hit your first oil change interval they put in the synthetic stuff. My bike sounded a lot smoother on startup once the synth oil was in after 6000km.

What if there were no hypothetical questions?
