Hi im Derek and new to this forum. I just bought my first v strom less then 3 weeks ago. It is a 2003 DL1000. The bike runs very good and is in beautiful shape. The only thing i noticed is that the clutch seems to make kind of a rattling noise around 3000 rpms. Below that or above it goes away. while it's making the noise is i put a little pressure on the clutch lever it goes away. I dont pull it in to disengage just a little pressure on the lever. thanks if anyone has any advice.
