On tickover and at low revs, the engine (clutch?) sounds like a bag of spanners so it will be interesting to see if the filing will make the rattle worse!
I'm in a similar position. Got my bike booked in for the annual service and a check on the clutch mechanism, the day before the big Euro trip in a few weeks' time. I mentioned the technical bulletin when booking the service, though they didn't immediately know of it. Mine also sounds like a bag of spanners, but I believe the Euro4 models are significantly quieter.

I've had some terrifying moments on the TVL on every extended trip, with the bike kangarooing forward - it's a wonder I haven't crashed yet! It's make or break time. It often happens in traffic or town riding. If it can't be fixed then I'll trade it in. I've got a demo of the SCS version when mine's in the workshop, which might be an answer (at a price!) otherwise I'll begin the quest again for a fun touring bike...

I've had this same problem with multiple bikes over the years. It has always been glazed plates caused by the oil I have used.

Change the oil to the recommended type. You can de-glaze the plates with sandpaper over a flat plate. I use a Blanchard ground 1/2' plate. The other option is to just replace the plates. Most motorcycle clutches are fairly simple to work on.

Yes, I have heard this explanation, but what specific oil are you using? Mine is serviced by an official dealership so presumably everything is to factory spec, which is strange if you're saying it's the oil they use.

Do any of you use the "Quick Shift" feature?
If so how often?
Also do you use it for up and down shifting?

add:
Odometer reading?

On the right roads, certainly, and when in the mood for play! Mostly upshifts and only the occasional downshift.

I've yet to experience the problem noted with inconsistent clutch engagement.

I do use the "quick shift" feature all the time both up and down shifting. Down shifting only off throttle and up shift while on throttle. IMO, the quick shifting is a huge upside for fun when riding this moto.


I use Castrol 4T 5w-40 full synthetic oil.

edit 13K miles on my moto

I just added odometer reading to my post above.
I have 4200 miles on my '16 TV and also have not experienced the symptom either.
Not really a fan of the Q/S.
I've used it some, but now have it turned off.


The Castrol you are using is a good deal... even has the correct specs for MV on the package, too. (I might have to switch)

A bit over 13K miles on mine. After the initial oil change at 632 miles, I've changed the oil more frequent than the service interval listed in the shop manual/owners manual. Usually change at about 3K interval.

Clutch basket within the pictures is the one before the recall, and not the new one. Suggest a check with a dealer if it is yours.

No it is not mine. I used a photo off this forum as a reference for the clutch basket finger abrasions.

Sorry if it confused those following along in this thread.
