Does it go quieter when you pull the clutch ? Timing chain tensioner ?

My clutch is noisy when in neutral and you let go of the lever.
Not quite Ducati bag of nails noise but definately noisy.
Pull lever and goes quiet.

This appears to be normal as my 750 did this and 910 does it.
I assume it's the friction and metal plates rattling around as whilst they are wet they aren't completely submersed.

Bugger, this is always a tricky one to judge Eddy, either way, I would pick which is the easier to check, clutch or timing chain tensioner.
Those clutches are real easy to open and measure up, and the timing chain tensioner, you have Jon there which should be an expert at them by now.

Timing chain tensioner is first I think but do I have to pull the bloody head cover off to do it or take the risk and just change it big risk your thoughts

Don't take chances Eddy, do it the right way. I took a chance and got away with it, purely by luck though.

I have always attributed the "diesel sound" of the MV engine at idle to the radial valve configuration. I like it.
