yeah, my 2012 does that, but not sure if it is like yours? I think it is a matter of perception too...you might tune into that vibration and say, "wtf"? and I might not even notice...just blend in with all the other vibration that motor making. Thing is you got on your buddies and his was doing the exact same thing, so prob same thing as all others and there is nothing abnormal about yours? prob just tripping....there are things spinning inside your motor and mechanisms etc and when you have clutch engaged in nuetral, there is prob a deal going on where its loose or something?...Ive experienced that on different bikes. Man i love my bike and think it is freakn awesome!! it is everything...performance, comfort, style, price...it is incredible to me. most bad a#$ thing ive ever owned or borrowed. Dude, if it has some issue, as long as not something horrible like gear strips or valves knock...then im gonna look over it cause im gonna look at everything they got right. man, i put aftermarket rear sets on my bike cause the shifter had a lot of play in it and when I took off stock parts i was amazed at how cheap they were. i was a little disappointed that they thought that play was acceptable. i stepted on that shifter hard enough, i could bend it or snap it off. I could almost bend rear sets with my hands. Thing is..I fixed that and now perfect. I know they cut cornners to save cost, ect. I gotta check on that oil burning thing....cause im not one to check the oil all the time....I will check on that for you...? I would want to know too. Anyway enjoy your bik....you can always find something wrong if you look hard enough. that goes with anything or anybody....if you look for the flaws, you will find them.

I have a 2012 also, and mine has the same clutch noise. I was about to spend $111 to have it checked out, but I am glad you told me this so that I don't throw the money away. I would like it fixed myself, if anyone know how to fix it. It is very annoying and causes you to always hold the clutch in to get rid of the vibration. Also, I have a noise sound similar to almost a spark knock noise and clutch noise combined when I take off slowly at low rmp. IT is like a stress noise, not real loud but disturbing, worried something is defective or out of adjustment. I have heard that you need to often give the CCT cam chain adjuster a knudge because the stick even though the are auto, but I don't think that is where the noise is coming from. It sounds like it is up front in the valve/cam area? It really sound more like a spark knock but not quite. I tried 101 octane fuel to fix it, but it did not change. I will try to reset the cam chain though I doubt that will help. Anyone else here the stress spark knock like noise when the take off in first gear slowly? You can't hear it if you rev the engine up loud or once driving. But I think the noise is still there? Or it might just be the get it rolling stress, I have never heard it on another bike though.

About to take bike on long trip and I don't want to get stranded. Noises are sometimes a precursor to part failure. Better to fix it early than have a part failure destroy more parts. So hard to find a good, experienced mechanic whom knows answers without tearing things apart, I can do that!
