Kennylxix Eh. Doesn't mean or not mean much without more context. If it's the starter then just keeping an eye on it and taking care of it when it's gets bad enough is fine. If it's something else then????

Its intermittent, like today it made no noise the first cold start. So I am not sure if that means anything.

Perhaps, it is just in its " Break In Time Period ".

Oh snap, I was also on the NC700 forum in another window on my browser and got a little jumbled. Long day, I guess...

At only half a second, I'd suspect the starter, but it could be anything really.

Kennylxix My first thought is bearings in the starter. It could be a lot of different components in the engine but it's unlikely and starters can make some pretty strange noises as the bearngs go bad.
As the engine starts the starter becomes unloaded and that's when worn plain bearings will sort of "rattle" and the rapid vibration can sound like a squal.
Again it's very hard to know without at least hearing it but the starter is a fairly common failure point.

SparkyMJ Hahaha. well, yes, the sound occurs right after the engine starts firing. if it cranked and didnt start, the sound would not happen. I'll try to get a video, but it may take a couple failed attempts. Today's cold start, it tried to make the sound, but it didn't really happen today. It also wasn't as cold this morning. Any more ideas?

Thanks guys. Hopefully its not too bad, I suspect it could be starter clutch or something, I am not sure though.

IronWarrior DCT or Manual? Not sure it makes a difference, but if it's something with the trans it could.
