Re: Clutch noise?
Just so I get this right, you get that chirping sound when you are idling the engine?
Sounds like your clutch may be rubbing your outer casing and I would at least take it off and look for signs of rubbing. The chirping sounds like dry metal rubbing against dry metal at a high speed. My reason for thinking this way is because the clutch is pushed outwards, bringing it closer to the outer case/cover on the engine. While I do not have this problem, I did wipe out in the snow and noticed that my right side case/cover got dented inwards and cracked the metal as I slid along the road. (It was the peddle arm/crank that did it)
