Dear Triumphrat community.

New owner here.
Bought a used 2010 Street triple R with 66k kms.
Its a brilliant bike and love to ride it.

Yesterday, when in neutral i could feel a rattling going in the engine which would stop when pulling the clutch.
there is no issue, at least not a one i can hear, when riding on a gear.
the issue only appears when not pulling the clutch and in neutral gear.

Anyone has any experience on how to address this?

Kind regards,
Banjea

Everyone has experience this. It's the clutch plates rattling. I'm pretty sure it's the power pulses from the engine rattling the plates that are spinning without any load on them, but I'm not a mechanic so I could be wrong about the cause. I am certain this question has been asked and answered many times on this forum.

It's not an issue. What it is is a tactile reminder of the wonderful mechanical beast these bikes are.

got stand next to a ducati with a dry clutch under the same circumstances and listen for a while, you can stop worrying.
