I do have a rekluse with a bit of chatter occasionally. Could it be from the clutch slipping?

The issue is "3rd owner, at least".
The previous owner(s) may not have changed the oil, only topped it off. This would mean there is years of clutch debris in your crank and tranny that need to be removed.
That, or they used a non 'motorcycle' oil that is eating away the clutch plates.
Or, they put sawdust in the motor to smooth out damaged engine noises.
You can use motorcycle engine flush. Don't use Car engine flush as it will soften the clutch plates.

You may be onto something with the gear too high thing. I try and keep the motor singing but am aware that on occasion I could be running a lower gear. I'll keep that in mind next spring when we can start riding again. thanks
