Clutch noise

Had my bike not used for almost 3 months as I managed to loose my driver licence with it for excess speed. Since in a week or so will get my licence back started it today, checked tires pressure, hoping will catch few rides before winter will come. Anyway, it started immediatelly with some noise until oil came up, what is bothering me is a noise coming from cluch. When pressing cluch lever noise is gone, when leave it I can hear something like a bad clutch release bearing noise, exactly the same as a car with same bearing gone. Is this possible to hapen at only 8000km? Was also thinking trading the GT for the new GSA1200. Does it worth it?

I had a clutch noise at about 5k thru 12k. The dealer mechanic even heard the noise at 6k service, we decided to "wait and see". Now at 16k the noise hasn't been heard since 12k...who knows. Still love this bike!
