All, My 2002 YZ 426 started making an interesting noise this past weekend. The noise happens only when the clutch lever is pulled all the way in, thus touching the handle bar. The noise does not happen when I pull the clutch lever in with only 2 fingers with my other fingers blocking the lever from touching the grip, but it is obviously fully disengaged at that point. The noise is proportional to engine speed and happens if the bike is moving or not. The noise sounds like a component is rubbing some part of the case or cover. The lever feel does not change in any way when the noise starts or stops. I was thinking that the thrust bearing behind the pressure plate may be bad, but it doesn't make sense for the bearing to make noise with some load on it (i.e. with the clutch in with load on that bearing), so I think it is more proportional to the position of the pressure plate. I searched and saw some threads of people having bolts back out of the clutch boss, but that doesn't make sense for this noise. I am going to pull it apart tonight but was just looking for some suggestions since I have no ideas. Any Ideas? Thanks!
