I am starting to hear a very noisy clutch noise. It sounds like there is something rubbing on the clutch cover while running. When you pull in the clutch the noise is less but not gone. I checked the clutch and all plates were within spec. There was no signs of scraping or out of place.

With the clutchplates removed turning the inner hub seemd to "make noise" as you spin it....like a worn bearing sound.

Could the crank bearing be worn out?

Any help would be great.

Do you have a glideplate on, WC glideplate also works as a ”sound” amplifier.

What you have is most likely normal transmission gear rattle. This results from the fact that the engine does not turn at a constant speed at idle, but rather, accelerates abruptly each power stroke, and decelerates just as hard each compression stroke. That rattle the trans back and forth, producing a considerable racket.

Pulling the clutch in will at least reduce the noise, because you break the direct connection to the engine, and putting the bike in gear will stop it altogether, because it stops the trans. If you have a failed bearing, which I very much doubt, you should be seeing a sudden, definite increase in the amount of squarish flakes of steel in the oil. I'll bet you don't have that. :thumbsup:

As a matter of fact I do have the WC glide plate....!! Thinking back ...I believe the time I started to notice the noise was when I installed the glideplate. Maybe If I put the foam under the engine that will lower the noise.

I think next time I ride I'll take the plate off and on to "measure" the sound.

Happen to me also, it is the glide plate. It will take you a few rides to get use to it then it won't matter anymore. :thumbsup:

Yep, me too. I took the glide plate back off and the noise disappeared. There have been some previous posts, using the foam will help but not completely eliminate the noise.
