Z800 clutch noise

Hi guys,

I've noticed that my Kawasaki Z800 makes a grinding/slipping noise when clutch is released when accelerating from a stop, but only when the bike is cold.

I took it to a Kawasaki mechanic who said it's fine, it's just because the clutch isn't fully lubricated when the bike is cold so it slips.

But I've not heard this noise on any other Kawasaki I've owned. So just wanting opinions.. has anyone had a similar issue that can offer any clarification?

Here's a video of the noise - you can hear it at about 40 seconds in.

Thanks in advance.
