I know I need to adjust the clutch slack because I have quite a bit at the top of the lever when I pull 'er in. My question is, when the bike is in neutral and the lever is out, untouched.. I can hear the clutch spinning, grinding, something.

To engage the clutch, I can barely pull the lever in and it engages. I'm wondering if it's going out but I only have around 7900 miles.



Any input?

right now its got a semi syn in it and that may be the issue. im planning a change here soon to motul full syn as i had it in my R6 and loved it. oil hasnt been changed in a few months and its due, but i didnt think that had anything to do with when the clutch would engage.

This is from another post. They all make that noise.

I know this sounds funny but the rattle is normal too. There is the clutch pressure plate, a bearing and a pin. The pin attaches to the clutch with the bearing, and (that arm that moves on top of the clutch cover) inside pulls the pin releasing the clutch. When the clutch lever is fully released, that pin starts to spin and the end rattles around in the arm piece that pulls it. That why it takes just a little pull on the clutch lever to get that to stop making noise. Just let it be a Honda and don't try to stop it from making that rattle.
