Hi, I have a stock 2009 Vmax . Is anybody experiencing a slight clunking noise comming from the right side of the engine by the clutch. Seems to clunk when you let of throttle or when you pull in the clutch under load. Also seems to have noticeable driveline lash when letting off of throttle in any gear. Yamaha dealer checked clutch and said noise is normal from the slipper clutch. Just bought the bike recently and had the recall done, didn't notice sound prior, but not really sure.

Thanks

I also have a 2009 Max and although it's probably noisier than some motorcycles, I'm used to it. The only way you will find out if yours is normal, is to find another Gen II and check out the difference. Noise and amount of backlash can't be diagnosed correctly through posts on here. Let another Vmaxer ride yours to see what he thinks. Sorry I can't be more helpful.
