Default KT45TP-H startup flames

Hello everyone,

I got a Kingtech KT-800 heli since september. I got quite a few flights on it by now and it is a fatastic machine.
There are however some flames during the start procedure. Not much or for long but it wasn't there during the first couple starts.
I contacted kingtech and I got new values to try (less pump voltage and less pump start value) but all it does is lenghen the startup procedure with the same behavior otherwise.

I am not talking about a burning turbine here just a couple very short visible flames. I never had a bad start or anything and it runs flawless.
Should I look into tweaking this some more or is it simply to be expected? I am using Jet A-1 with 5% Kingtec Oil btw.

You can see what I am talking about on this video at the 50 second mark:
