:headbang: My 07 V has 11,000 miles and a rather unsettling clutch noise. It does not seem to the the EVIL Chutter that I have read about. I only hear the offending sound in neutral, stopped, with the clutch lever released. It sounds like a :furious:sewing machine. Pull in the clutch lever and the noise stops. It seems to be a little louder and annoying when the bike is warmed up. I have taken the bike to my local Suzuki dealer twice and both times have been told that the noise is "normal" and "common" with all years of 1000 V's and the only remedy is to replace the clutch basket; which will last about 3000 miles before the noise returns. The clutch works fine but the noise drives me BATTY. I have not seen any mention of this issue on the forum. Does anybody have experience with this issue? If so, what did you do? Or is my dealer correct? The V is such a well designed and engineered bike, I have a hard time believing that Suzuki would let something like this go without at least trying to design a solution.
