sorry for the delay guys. had international guests while the bike sat three weeks at the dealer.
So they changed the cam chain guide(s) under the extended warranty, and I started it up at the dealer and it sounded like hell still. The service adviser asked "what you wanted it fixed right?" Funny, but I wasn't too amused. It was the clutch.
I was headed to Utah, so I took it anyway. A few hundred miles into the trip, on comes the yellow triangle and the engine symbol comes up. Detour to Minden, Nevada where a friend has a GS911 and the error is "knock sensor." I don't know which one, since they both throw the code but were wildly different voltages in real time. My theory is the clutch basket is making so much noise it is freaking out the knock sensors.
I'll update it again when I get back from Alaska on my 140,000 mile RT.
