Ticking Engine Noise Brand New kx450

Hey all, glad to be here. Bought a 2019 kx450 Saturday and loaded it up at 6:30, they closed at 6. They prep the bike while I completed the paperwork. I am not sure what all this is they do, but took it off of the show room floor and preped it. I get it home, push it into my garage since its dark. Im showing my wife, explaining all the $ i spent and started it. We hear this engine ticking noise, she looks at me funny sigh. I just bought my daughter a 110L a few weeks earlier, know they are nothing alike. I have a Honda TRX 450 r, but other than this dont know alot about these things. The noise is concerning. Im not sure if it is just the noise they make, it does this while it breaks in, or if something is wrong with my brand new bike. The dealer does not open until Tuesday. I have a brand new bike I am afraid to ride and its upsetting. I can hear it coming from the top of the engine. Spent all day looking over the internet trying to find out if this is something or nothing. I have tried to attach the sound recording here but do not seem able to

Not trying to be a smart ass but I'd wait till they open, probably Tuesday, and have them figure it out since it's under warranty. If you mess with it, there goes your warranty!
