Thumbs up Scary noise from engine, Dragster RR-> It was the spragclutch

Hi!
Yesterday i was firing up my RR after riding at the track, it was a technical track, so i was in 3 gear for most of the time, and the revs was high most of the time.
When the bike has got about 1 hour to cool down, it was time to get out there again, and it fires up, and this nois, sounds like someone had put some gravel in there, i was wearing earplugs and helmet, so i just, "Whatthehell!" and then it was gone, i revd it to about 3-4000rpm, and the sound was back, and the engine stopped...... pushed it out of the pit, and was sure that the engine was shot.
About 20min later i pushed the starter (if it was gone, whats the difference) and it fired right up, and no noise, reved it, some noise, then all back to normal...... Did ride it home, as there was no other way to get it home, and for the 180km ride, no issues.Did it in "R" mode, and very easy riding Anyone else had this "problem"?
It happened at 21015km.
Was suspecting the timing chain tensioner, but i dont know...
Was at the dealer today, and its going in july 20.
But i could just ride it

Did you do a search on spragg clutch noise, or do you think this was different?

This was different. The engine was idling when this occurred.
And it sounded like it came from the LHs of the engine.
The guy on the bike in front of me turned around and looked at me, with this look :

I believe that model has the hydraulic cam chain tensioner in it which is noisy on startup sometimes. My '16 F3 675 RC does it on occasion.

Welcome to the world of MV! My girl has a spirit all her own, mystery noises, random clicks and clanks. I'ts kind of like when it rains and your joints ache. I love her because every ride is filled with the wonder and mystery of what was that noise. Oh, look she's idling erratically today! Oh, today she ran great! Oh today the cooling system is gurgling! Oh look now my clutch engages here, and tomorrow it engages there.! Oh, today the shifts are smooth and no clanks between shifts! Oh, well there's that noise again, haha I thought that one went away! The Ghost n the Machine! Sting must have been an MV Owner!!

OMG! This is EXACTLY how I would describe my experience! Exactly. Added to the above, I get a few smells of something and wonder what it is as well. Also a crazy little rattle at a certain RPM.

All part of the epic experience

Love it!
