i read in some other posts on here about a rattle on the right hand side i found my rattle to go away when i pull the clutch lever in and come back when i let the clutch out. another thing i noticed is when i am cruising my clutch lever has a slight amout of play in it but the harder i accelerate the tighter the clutch lever gets. is this normal? my only other bike is a gsxr 750 and it doesnt do either of the following things i listed. im wonering if i may have a problem or if thats just the way they all are. also one more thing, do all of these bikes clunk real hard when put into 1st gear and when downshifting to 2nd or 1st gear or is that another problem of mine? once again my gsxr doesnt do that and thats the only other bike i have to compare things to besides asking everyone else on here.
