Hit it she goes boom
Sorry if this is in the wrong place, but this one is a puzzler. Backround: O3 RK 103 14 grand on the clock. The only recent things done have been the clutch and front brake fluid change (hydraulic clutch). Everything done per the manual, Dot 5. This has happened twice now. When I go to start the bike, with the clutch pulled, in gear, or in neutral, it makes this horrible noise which sounds like missing teeth on a gear. If I don't pull in the clutch and fire her up in neutral, no problem... so far. When I flushed the clutch and changed the fluid, I took it for a test ride, my friction zone seems to have stayed the same, the manual just says to road test the bike. Is it possible there's too much clutch for the starter???
