I have a 2003 RC, when I start her up sometimes, I hear what sounds like a valve pecking or something, I haven't done any engine work to her, she's got 15.5k miles on her and she's getting ready for a valve adjustment. The sound is intermittent and varies day to day, ride to ride. I use Mobil 1 4T 10W-40 and a Purolator Pure oil filter. Any help on possibly diagnosing this would be a lot of help, even if it's just to tell me that I'm full of crap and am worrying too much.

seems to be a lot of ticking posts lately, check exhaust manifold bolts as well. if it persist, pull the valve covers and check for improper cam wear, or just go ahead and have your valves adjusted, they can check that at the same time.
