K9 Rattling Issue
So I recently bought this bike knowing there were some issues after a clutch replacement.
Here goes. The previous owner informed me that he replaced the clutch due to it being worn. During a ride after being replaced, the adjuster nut came loose and he rode it home with no clutch. Once home, he retightened the nut, but also stated the adjuster rod was a bit stripped so he removed the clutch cover to ensure it was tight. He described a rattling noise after reinstalling the clutch cover.
I didn't hear the bike run when I purchased because he feared he might have dropped a bolt somewhere in the engine during the clutch install. Once purchased, I ended up removing the oil pan and checked what I could for the missing bolt. I can only assume it wasn't in there because I found nothing.
I put everything back together and performed a fresh oil change and immediately upon startup I noticed the noise then it briefly went away. I thought it might have been the CCT, so I ordered and installed a new one. Unfortunately, the noise is still there.
The noise can be heard during idle, with the clutch held or released, and while riding up to 5k rpms. I also noticed that the bike vibrates more with the clutch released. The noise appears to be primarily coming from the clutch cover area, however when riding, I can hear it right around the manifold side of the head.
At this point, I'm about to drop it off at a dealer to try and figure this out. I'm wondering if I could has anything to do with the clutch basket. Any help is greatly appreciated.
