Hi you all!! I own a 2007 WRF 450, and when I disengage the clutch (as in Neutral gear) I hear more noise coming from tthe gearbox. My mechanic inspected clutch discs, the whole clutch assembly...and everything ok.
Though...noise is still there.
Any thoughts?

You need to change your mechanic.

He should know that all modern dirt bikes are quieter with the clutch disengaged.................
