Fixing the clutch rattle?

Post by Smousley1995 » Tue Apr 30, 2013 7:47 pm

I recently bought my zxr and had it serviced to check it all out. I knew it had clutch rattle (as do most zxr's as it seems :P) but the guy at the garage said the rattle was a little bit louder than normal and I'm pretty sure I've heard it get worse since I bought the bike.
I've had it 3 weeks and racked up 1300 miles and haven't exactly been gentle with it although its restricted to 33bhp so that should be gentle for what it's used too :)
But anyway the cam chain tensioner went a few days ago and I needed to change the clutch plates so while I'm spending money and getting at the clutch would it be worth fixing the rattle?
I realise it will probably come back after a week or two but it shouldn't come back as bad as it is?
And am I right in saying it is the basket bearing that I would be replacing and if so how much would the new bearing be?
Thanks in advance for any help :)
Why take life so seriously, your not going to come out alive!
