If you are only hearing the noise at idle, especially when the bike is fully warmed up, it might NOT be clutch related. Could be Idle Hammer, a sound like a wooden mallet tapping the engine cases. Worse after a spirited ride and then pull up to a stop light, can be rather obvious. If raising the rpms slightly makes it go away, that is another sign it is Idle Hammer. Pulling in the clutch lever make change it as well. Caused by movement of the crankshaft at idle speed. I think the offset cylinders allow the rods to move the crank side to side just enough at very low rpm so that you hear the crank hit the thrust surface.
There is NO indication that there is ANY harm comes from this. Been around since 2002 in the first DL 1000's.
Clutch chudder isn't really a noise. It is the vibrations you feel mostly in the 2500-4000 range as you accelerate from a stop or add throttle to pass or pull a hill. The parts that cause clutch chudder can in fact make quite a bit of noise at idle and other rpms. Usually more of a "tinny" sound, not at all like Idle Hammer once you hear them both.
