Exclamation something sounds like its going to gernade when I release the clutch!

A few months ago I took My bike in for the 12,000 mile service everything was ok no issues. I get it back and every time I release the clutch I can feel something going on. I pull the clutch back in and it goes away. The bike know has 17,000 miles on it and I took it to the dealer they say its normal as the bike gets higher miles. The problem is my 2005 zx10R doesn't do this and it has 50,000 miles on it. so It doesn't feel right.

So my question is for the higher mile owners have you experienced this at all? maybe an adjustment with the clutch? or something in the clutch is broken. I should find out soon as My bike is about due for the 18,000 mile service so I'll be dropping it off for the Con-rod warranty work shortly and the dealer will be doing the 18,000 mile service at the same time.

I just kinda wanted to get an idea from you guys. Maybe someone will have the same issue or is having the same issue.

Sounds like something is loose / broken but can't tell if I don't hear it.

It's gotta be something in the clutch, maybe a cracked plate or something who knows. I've never had that problem and I have 10k hard miles on mine.

I'm at 41,000+ miles on my 2011 as of today and I'm on my original clutch. 17 trackdays and every day commutes .. No issues.

Explain more about what the "something going on" feels like? It could be as simple as lubricating the clutch/clutch cable. Wher do you have your clutch adjusted to? I always dial in a TINY bit of slack in mine when cold.

Sorry for the spin off discussion here, but just a cool coincidence. I put 50,000 miles on my 2005 zx10 too! It had 51k miles when i traded I in for my s1k. What a great bike that was!
I was cruising through Anaheim, pulled over and took this pic.
