loud clutch noise

Recommended Posts

I had a service manager at a Yamaha dealer tell me his mechanic believes my clutch when not pulled in is noisier than other FJs and FZs he has worked on. They suggest opening up to take a look. Problem is they are too far away for me to leave for a week if repairs/warranty work needs to be done.
Here's the thing though. I don't notice it so very much. Yeah it's noisy but not crunchy sounding or whining loudly, just a rumbling clatter sort of noise.
The closer dealer I wouldn't go to for a light bulb.
Thoughts about this or similar experience?

they are known to be clattery... probably the clutch basket is getting deeper grooves in it... its a simple job to replace clutch basket and put in new plates... its not considered warranty work...
