lifter tick

ok so im a noob. so go ahead and tell me to fuck off or go pound sand or what ever you do here. Im sure you are all sick of exhaust mod questions, so i have a new one for you. I have only been riding for five years only so i dont know alot about motorcycle engines, im a auto mechanic so im not clueless. I have a 2001 handa sabre 1100 with 19 k miles on it. When i start it up cold at idle it sounds like a lifter tick from the front cylinder. slightly off idle or if it runs for three or four minutes the tick is gone. The owners manual said the lifters are hydraulic and im running 10w40. Does anyone else have this problem? should i be worried about it? Are lifter a pain in the ass to change? or should i put thicker oil in it? Any help would be great.
