Been getting some strange sounds out of my clutch, especially at certain speeds it almost sounds like the chain is hitting the primary, I took my cover off and the chain is not too loose but is jumping funny when the bike is running. I am not sure if the clutch hub friction liner is too thin? It hasn't touched the rivets yet but it is real close. The bearing retainer is a little loose and there seems to be some wear to the retainer itself. Also on the clutch hub sprocket there appears to be a rivet missing it never fell out or anything so it may have been gone for a while? If the liner is worn out can it cause the primary chain to move side to side also if the retainer is worn can it allow things to move as well? I can find any real apparent rub marks in the primary, but this just started. Any thoughts/help on things to check would be appreciated. I have some photos that I am trying to post as well.

Hi Mikel, I had this kind of noise because I was using an O ring secondary chain, the quick link (a little larger tan the others) was hitting the primary case each turn. I could ear it only to a particular speed. Of course, I was looking at the wrong place (clutch, cluch hub, chain etc...)
