Who likes their Dry clutch sound?
I guess it's an acquired taste.. but personally I don't like the sound at all
I hold my clutch in, just so I don't have to hear it rattle away
especially on youtube vids... I have a stock exhaust.. and I'm trying to watch video's of the exhausts
listen to the pulses and burble at Idle, and rev up etc..
all I can hear is the stupid clutch banging away...
i almost wish ppl would tie their clutch in for the duration of the vid.. or have a friend sit on the bike..
but it seems to me the Duke owners are proud of this sound, and laugh at the ignorance of others.. who think their bike sounds "broken"
to me it's a sound that is almost like a combination of a racing OS Giken twin or triple plate clutch... mixed with the sound of an engine with spun main bearings... or terrible piston slap or rod knock or Tappets way out of adjustments
basically all "bad things" minus the OS Giken..
I can see the appeal of the open clutch covers "to see things work" but the fact that it makes the rattle even louder is motivation enough for me to not want to do it.. a clear acrylic one on the other hand maybe...
What's your guys take on the whole thing?
