clutch failure???





#1
Hi,
 Taking new Busa home tonight, noticed a funny smell a half mile after leaving dealer.  Got home and noticed smoke coming from clutch area and squeaking/grinding sound when releasing the clutch in neutral.  The clutch does not slip, and feels fine otherwise.  Is this normal for a bike with 0-12 miles on it???
 Any help is appreciated.  Please point me in the right direction if nobody here can help.

If it were just the smoke I would say yes it is just packing oils burning off. The squeaking/grindind noises I would call the dealer and have them take a look at it. With little to no miles on it I would question every little noise. Welcome to the board and I hope all works out for you.

Thanks for the help.
It's dark grey with black stripes.
Overall it's a monster and I totally love the bike.
Will post results of dealer visit as soon as I know something.
