hey...another noob ish question...looking for any help/ideas before i tear this thing apart and attempt to fix it!
i did a search and read some other threads but couldnt find exactly what i was looking for.
when im in neutral the engine sounds great....as soon as i pull in the clutch lever (whether in gear or in neutral) there is a ticking sound that i can hear coming from the clutch.
im not sure if it still makes the sound while moving in gear or not (the akrapovic is too loud :P)
the clutch seems to be fully engaged when i accelerate yet it only engages when the lever is almost fully out (starts to grab with maybe 3/4 to 1 inch left before the lever is fully out...and is a fairly abrupt grab...not smooth)
it also seems to disengage completely when the lever is pulled in (aside from the ticking noise)
i have adjusted the knob on the lever (minor adjuster) almost all the way out but have still been able to produce the correct amount of free play the the maintenance manual calls for (10-20mm free play in the lever)
I have not however touched the major adjuster yet.
it seems to me that when i go to shift gears, the shifting lever is shifting a bit hard as well...but im not very familiar with this bike yet soo i dont know if its good or not.
basically im looking to eliminate the ticking sound and make it soo my clutch engages much smoother (not just at the very end of letting the lever out)
my bike has 31,800 km on it and i dont believe it has had any clutch work done to it.
im going to remove the cover and check it out but do you think that it just might be the need to make an adjustment with the major adjuster / new cable....or would getting new clutch pack basket, discs, etc be needed or would it help with making my shifting smoother?
i appreciate your time,
