I have a new 09 with 3 hours on it. While riding today, it suddenly started making a loud whirring/bad bearing type noise from the clutch area. It does get much quieter when the clutch is pulled in but it is very noticeable otherwise. Even friends watching could here it. I have ridden the bike two times previously and it did not make this noise. I pulled the cover and removed the plates and did not see anything obviously wrong. It got louder as the bike got hotter. I stopped riding the bike because I did not want to risk further damage. I did do a search and saw several threads about 06 and earlier models being normal. I do not believe this is normal noise in my case. Like I said, it did not make the noise previously. Any suggestions?
