Re: Screeching noise
No, for the time being I'm just living with it. Doesn't seem to affect anything else. Acceleration is fine and it idles great. If I go too fast like downhill and overrev the engine it really starts to vibrate. Like hard to hold onto the handlebar-type vibrate. I think I will try the grease down the clutch stop bolt hole first, then some sound deadening in the side cover (although I don't think that is where the noise is coming from). I will report back here if I find anything.
