clutch noise?

Hi all,

My k12r makes a rattle type noise from the clutch/gearbox, the engine revs will drop make a rattle/knocking noise and then then the revs pickup for a minuet or so then it happens again, but if you hold in the clutch the noise doesnt happen anr the revs stay constant.

Cheers

I have the same noise. almost sounds like rocks in the engine. From what I have been told, this is normal for the KRs. Apparently if you upgrade to the k1300 clutch basket, the noise will go away.
