As a former parts counter guy...I've seen this far too often.

Yeah, I soaked them 10 minutes like the package said. Fibers and steels (not sure if I was supposed to soak the steels, but I did). They DID sit about 24hrs, though (cover back on) between the time I put them in soaked and the time I filled it up with oil and ran it. This was when I was adjusting the cable and such. Will they eventually get coated in oil?

Yes. They need the pre soak though. Just wanted to rule that out. Under spring pressure it would take a while to get them covered and they would run dry until they got covered.

its gotta be something to do with the engaging disengaging of the clutch since it only happens when you pull/release the lever, and only for a fraction of a second, this may not be all that helpful since you already have the sound pinned down but you may try taking a mechanics stethoscope to the clutch cover and probing the entire circumference of the cover to see if you can localize the sound even further then pop the cover back off and investigate.

If it works, i may not investigate it too much further, it doesnt seem to be that big of a deal. may also be new clutch that hasnt worn in yet either.

maybe patrick will weigh in and tell us what he thinks.

The clutch is spinning. He knows its the clutch. No point in trying to listen. lol

What oil is it? same as before? Ive known bikes that made more noise with different oils. Joes Busa made a ton of noise on Amsoil. Changed the oil and the noise went away

Castrol conventional motorcycle 10W-40, same as before (cheap stuff, I know, I know....I figured I might not get it right the first time, ya know?). Previous oil only had 1 1/4 trackdays on it. If anything I overfilled it a little- took about 2.75 quarts last time, this time I put in exactly 3 quarts.

Think it's OK to take to the track this weekend? Planning on TWS (Texas World Speedway) Monday the 26th. Again, it feels fine around the parking lot, but I can't really open her up anywhere but the track. I'm anxious to get back out there, but at the same time I don't want a repeat of the last trackday...

You will find out. As long as it's together right, I can see anything going wrong

Update

Just an update- took the bike up to TWS (Texas World Speedway) Monday. New clutch was great; no slipping whatsoever. And by lunchtime, I think the noise had even gone away. I guess the plates just needed time to be soaked/worn in.

Thanks for the help guys.
