Mine makes a piston slap noise, much like hondas I've had, most noticeable during warm up.
This sound can be mistaken for a bearing or piston pin having a problem. This is harmless in my case.
Rod or piston pin noise tends to increase as oil temp comes up, the piston slap tends to reduce at operating temp.
Cut your oil filter, you'll likely see it if there a bearing /pin going away.
