Can/does the clutch rattle if the friction plates are bad? Possible symptoms im having. Gear slippage (only one instance of very bad gear slippage), A very distinct rattle slightly similar to the ducati's dry clutch rattle but only at the 5-7k rpm range possibly coming from the clutch but I cant know for sure. Very minor but noticeable power loss in some cases similar to running out of gas but only in first gear when increasing rpm where you lurch forward almost as if the clutch is slipping then catching again. No power past 12-13k rpm as if the clutch cant handle the load past that rpm. Can any of these be tied to the clutch and is one instance of gear slippage enough to call the clutch totally done? The bike for the last two ride has been acting very weird almost as if the clutch is holding on for all it might before it completely losses friction. Its not the end of the world if I pay 160 for a clutch kit (springs/plates) but I would like to know as much as possible before spending. By no means will getting a new clutch be a bad thing because im at 24xxx miles with the stock clutch. But Like I said id rather not buy just yet if the clutch isnt the problem because if the clutch isnt the problem i have a much bigger problem to worry about.
