Check for exhaust leak at the heads. My rear cylinder pipe will work loose after a couple year and needs new crush gasket in it.

Eather it's your exhaust blowing OR your oil is to heavy ! I don't know the 800 motor ! some one with more no how will be along to help you out !

I don't know if your motor has hydrolic lifters ! If it has the oil could be to thick to pump them up untill the motor is warm !

1. How many miles on it?
2. How long have you owned?
3. Did the noise just start one day, or?
4. Any modifications...pipes, etc?
