New bike cold start ticking

Just bought a 2019 zx6r about 3 weeks ago. The other day I had the dealer change oil at 600 mi. Did a bit of riding and parked it. Next time I started the bike I noticed it has a ticking sound. I've warmed the engine up a couple of times and made some short trips around my neighborhood and it seems to go away after the engine warms up. Should I just take it to the dealer and have them look at it?

Is it a concistantly timed tick as in a valve tick or is it random?

its constant until it gets pretty warm but does seem to kinda come and go. I have a vid recorded from my phone but I'm not sure how to add it to the message.

It's also tied to the throttle. It's a very light ticking not a knocking.
