    When I start slowly to release the clutch to get the bike going on the first gear, there is a chirping sound coming out at the moment the clutch is almost fully realeased(bike is going).
    I had the same sound on a '97 R1100RS and '99 R1100R. What cause the sound? Can adjustment eliminate the sound?

    In this video, at 1:09 you can hear it.

    That's your ABS brakes activating.
    Not the clutch.
    Normal.
