Annoying ride...

Totally not mechanical minded so curious (and a bit paranoid!) Cleaned the bike and took her for a quick ride. I was in traffic today at a stop sign with a car in front. The car in front pulled away and then stopped, then pull away, so I fumbled the clutch. I had the clutch pulled in, revíd the engine ready to go, realized the car was hesitating, the revíd the engine again and accidentally let the clutch out quickly (not all the way).

I heard a sound that to me sounded like a metal slap with a slight jolt, Iím assuming it was the clutch plates slamming together(?). I didnít stall and adjusted quickly and then pulled away smoothly.

My question - Does that seem likely that it would have been the clutch? If so, does that cause any wear/damage? Probably a dumb question, but it must put a lot of torque on something when the clutch plates suddenly stick like that?

And one more... moved the bike forward a few feet with the stand down and caught it on the floor. It juddered and made a horrible scrapping sound. Stand seems fine, but does that stress anything, frame etc!

Annoying day!

The stand thing, no. All should be fine. The first thing, dunno. What kind of bike are we talking about.

You're probably fine man. The clutches on these bikes can take a beating if thats what it is, you may have just heard your chain tense up and slap the guide? Either way, most of us here abuse our bikes way more than that and they're fine.

Dropping clutch isnt going to hurt anything.. Could have been any number of things to make a noise.. Nothing to worry about.. Would have to be a defect in the bike if there really is a problem...

you did not say anything about the front wheel coming up, so you could not have popped the clutch with a lot of revs up...you just need more ride time.

My clutch makes some noise when first starting a ride sometimes. Goes away quickly once oil warms up.

Don't worry about it. If it works fine, just ride....

I ride a Street Triple and you have a serious problem. Your bike is in desperate need of more quality ride time. Come on a Morganator ride this weekend and work out the kinks in that bike!
