New Member - Advice on Triumph Trident Tripple

Hello all,
I have a 1996 900cc Trident. Love the bike, its used daily, and wears its age pretty well. Only got 35k on the clock, however recently ive heard a rattle coming from somewhere near the clutch basket casing (inside) It seems to make what can only be described as a 'buzzing noise' when the engine is cold. After a few miles once the oil is warm its never heard. I rang A1 moto in York to pick their brains, but got the impression they couldn't be arsed with me. Just wondered if anyone else had heard of this or came across anything similar. I could take it to the dealers, but its 50 miles each way, and like I said, once your met with an 'arsey attitude' over the phone, its makes you slightly reluctant to do the miles, especially at this time of year. Any tips or advice would be great.
Cheers Geoff
