Alright so my '06 Yz125 has this weird noise coming out of the motor. I thought it was something in the clutch and after taking apart and inspecting many times I have come to the conclusion that the clutch isn't it. It's really an indescribable noise, not a grinding, pinging, scratching or anything like that. The bike will be running, not in gear and sound fine then the noise will start and either just go away for a minute or go away when I put it in gear. The bike also rides fine it just makes the noise when not in gear. I am going to try to take it to the shop tomorrow but I was just wondering if anyone has had this problem. Thanks.

My 06 YZ125 makes a whining noise in neutral and only neutral, it is almost undetectable though and it is brand new also. I think it is normal.

Could be the main bearings about to go, and only make a noise (so far) while under a load...

Is it a rumbling whirring noise with a bit of diesel motor sound? If it is just go ride. All my 2 strokes have had that noise until I pull in the clutch or put it in gear.

Would the noise go on and off? Because now that I think of it it is a kind of like that.

It could go on and off. Does it get quieter when the clutch is pulled in?

How many hours on it and when was the last oil change?

No the noise doesn't change with the clutch or rpm's. I took it to the shop and the tech didn't know exactly what it was. I am going to split the cases to inspect since that's the only thing I can do.
