Types of clutch noise
After a long period of decision, now I've got a '07 GT by trading in my '06 RT. By the way I want to share my first impressions. Yes it seems "far better bike" than RT as everyone says. It has more stable and better handling, more responsive riding dynamics and of course the silky 4 cyl. engine. Everything seems good except this damn turbulence and the irritating clutch noise.
I found that the people having problem with the clutch is suffering from a squealing noise. I didn't have a chance to hear that noise but I think mine is different. It is like a pair of rusty metals rubbing each other (something like harrrrtttt). I asked to service guy for several times. Everytime he said this sound is harmless and normal, there's nothing to change or fixed.
It becomes frustrating in the stop and go traffic. I think I will not get used to live with it. I may even pay myself if it is not under the warranty coverage. Anyone knows the source of this sound?
