350 Clutch Noise ????

Among other mods, looks like they shortened the brake pedal.

350 Clutch Noise ????

When mine sounded like that, both the clutch nut (40mm spanner) and the crankshaft nut were loose.  Unfortunately, it just started making the noise again. Looks like I may be doing a bit of maintenance work.

        Considering it has a cutaway cover, that doesn't sound too bad. I've tried putting packers around the outside of the plates without any reduction of noise, just chewed up the packers !
      The Kawasaki 350 Avenger used multiple rubber pads between the plates, supposedly to stop plate drag but I wonder if they had the same noise issue as BS. Not been able to find any details of how they were fitted.
     I'm told our clutch is quieter than the Ducati dry clutch, anyone confirm this  :-\
Unspoiled by progress.
I'm so glad I grew up in the 60s & 70s. I did so much stupid stuff and there's no record of it.............Anywhere !!

For a little over 2 years I owned a 2008 S4Rs Ducati tri-colore.
Loved the bike, but when I found a clutch cover that wasn't cut out I installed it.
I think it was a little noisier than the GTR clutch.
