clutch question

So I keep my Wee in the garage and push it outside and then warm it up. But I just installed some driving lights and started it inside and went to move it out running and notice a bit of noise difference with Clutch in than Clutch out. Nothing crazy sounding just a different hum so to speak. Have noticed that in cars but haven't ever notice on my M/C. Is this normal or is something happening there to cause concern?

I too get that sometimes specially when the bike is cold.
P.s. noticed that the noise is far less with new oil (first 500-1000km after oil change)

Ha, you're lucky. My Wee makes so many weird noises, I'd never hear that.
