3 weeks ago I did a 8 day, 2700 mile ride through the Alps (yes, I should make a trip report...), and among another small CB windshield problem (more on that later...), on the last day, returning home, when doing a stop to pull on some raingear, I noticed my clutch making a rattling noise when in neutral.
When revving up the noise increased, when engaging the clutch lever it disappeared, to come back when I released the lever.
The bike had run for at least 4 hours at higher speeds (in the 90-100 mph zone), so was really at 'operating' temperature.
This weekend, after a 150 mile ride I heard the same rattling, allthough it was not as pronounced as after the 4 hour highway ride. Average speed was also a lot less (twisties in the Ardennes).
I will mention it to my dealer at the 6000 miles maintenance, but do you guys already have any idea what this rattling could be? Problems ahead?
