Normal for the yammy clutches. My 05 RX has always done the same. Common to hear about them on the ty yamaha forums too.
Recently I was asked to play in a golf tournament.

At first I said, "Naw, I haven't been playing that well."

Then they said to me, "Come on, it's for handicapped and blind kids."

Then I thought...




Chit, I could win this!

I saw a guy come up with a fix for this.

Remove seat

Remove stock mufflers

cob weld on a pair of $19.99 cherry bomb mufflers

Replace seat


You will no longer hear your clutch eating itself alive
eff off

Part number 8ES-17655-00-00 These are dampeners that you install underneath one of the sliders on each spider leg. It will take away a lot of the noise. You will need 3 of them.

most were done no charge in or out of warranty, any reputable dealership could run your vin and it will say if the free of charge clutch kit was installed.

other than the slight rattle absolutely no damage will result from leaving it as is.

I can vouch for 21,000 collective miles on 2 sleds without a problem but holezee and a few others that lurk on here are well versed in all thing yamaha,...you might say they are obsessed with yamaha performance

Doesn't matter. They wear out. Plus the slider kit is discontinued.
