Noisy Motor on Start Up

We've rinsed the motor now with two oil changes but um, it's really noisy on a cold start up until oil gets moving through the motor.

Are the lifters solid or hydraulic? If they're solid you can make an adjustment on the that right?

Or could this be pointing to another issue, hopefully not too serious. I'm used to noisy lifters from my vl six but this certainly sounds quite different.

iv had my motor rebuilt and was noisy on start up for a few seconds, but changed to a larger oil filter(red motor one i think?) now its fine! unless ya dont start it for a couple of months. but check the rocker adjustment. easy to adjust, harder to get the tappet covers off! lol
