The General 650 I had for 11 or 12 years always had a BANG on the first few starts of the day if I hadn’t used it for a week or two. It would eventually go away, after use, but it would return if it sat for a while.

It was the belts taking a set. Until the belts flexed a bit, the mechanism would coast to a stop in the set, allowing the bang to happen more than once.

If I used the saw a lot, there was no bang, until it sat for a while again.
