Can any one send me a sound bite?

My 86 VN750 makes a deep thumping sound when first starting up. When you rev it it smoothes right out. As I have never heard one of these start up and run I have no idea if this is right of not. Can some one please do a recording of there well running engine starting up cold and after a few rev it up? Thanks

My 1985 VN700 does the same sound at startup but not all the time. Ive gotten use to it and dont expect its anything bad happenning. I think, for my pennies worth,, is that its the engine taking in a gulp of fuel and air and then trying to cough it back out again but instead the engine goes ahead and starts up fine. It real sounds deep throated when the chokes is turn on. Im sure some of the other members will chime in with their thoughts soon .Some of the folks here may or may not know what a sound bite is, but its just a recording aka of the sounds you want to hear.
