I have a 2008 GSXR600 with nearly 11000 miles and there is vibration/sound only when I'm in gear and moving. If I'm in neutral or stopped while in gear with the clutch in there is no sound, but whenever I am in gear and moving I can hear the sound/vibration. If I'm rolling in neutral or while in gear with the clutch disengaged the sound goes away. It's pretty annoying and concerning. I tried checking videos and forums on the issue and no help. Could anybody give me suggestions on what my issue could be? Thanks in advance.

How loud is the sound? Are you able to post a link to video that we could hear?
Do you know when the clutch was last changed?
Could be the clutch plates are due to be changed.
Possibly some imbalance in the transmission.
Might involve some disassembly and inspection.

The sound isn't loud but it is noticeable. I'd like to have included a video of it but it doesn't get picked up by the mic, either the wind or exhaust is masking it. I'm thinking it's related to the clutch as well, likely it's still the OEM clutch since the bike is still fairly low mileage.. I'll take a look at the plates and basket sometime soon and I'll change if needed. Also, I remember hearing a similar sound on my friends Ninja ZX6R last time I rode it.. Thank you for your reply!
