    hi,

    with the engine warm i can feel a vibration difference with the clutch in or the clutch out - less vibration with clutch in.

    and sometimes i get a high pitch chirping just as im leting the clutch out.

    ill pull the cover off sometime to double check the bolts anyway

    but whats "normal" for these bikes?

    How many miles?
    There's a chance the belleville-spring in the back of your clutch has left a mark in the last steel plate. Change the plate for another one from the middle of the pack and it should be fine.

    My 2005.5 950A with 13,000 miles does the exact same thing. Clutch works and looks great. Interested to hear some more input.

    Then the clutch gets well lubricated and works better.
    Cheers.

    as an update i found the source of the high pitch sound....its from the rear cylinder head. no idea whats causing it though.
