You can get it done at a Honda or Acura dealer for around $100 if you don't know how, or don't want to do it yourself.

Actually my car has the same problem and it had it since about 2 years ago. I went twice to Honda and once to a specialized Honda place in Brampton and nobody could fix the problem. All these guys claim to have "adjusted" the valves, but every morning when it's cold the engine ticks for about 1-2 minutes before it warms up. Not sure what was actually adjusted in the engine, but if there is a way to adjust this, and if it's easy, I'm willing to give it a try.

piston slap makes noise so do really cold injectors

pop the hood and listen with zen-like focus. let the melody penetrate your scull... envision the motion of the rotating assembly. it's not always valves...
