I think I know the answer, but is there anyway you can R/R the clutch rod and redo the release bearing with the transmission in the bike? (If so, any tips?)

Icarus,
I left a comment on your other noise thread.
If someone here has done it with the trans in the bike, hopefully they will chime in.
I think by the time you drink and cuss your way through it, it might be easier to pull the trans.

Thanks for that. It appears

Thanks for that. It appears that you can remove the release bearing assy from the rear by removing the clutch arm. I'm not sure how you withdrawl the assy however.

You can remove everything

You can remove everything from the rear of the transmission except the long pushrod. Even if you could remove the pushrod, the only way to install it is from front of the transmission...that's how you keep the piece of felt in position as the rod is slide in place.

clutch rod bearing assy

It should come out very easy with a small magnet

I had a weird nose on my r69
It also was very hard to tell were it was coming from
The charging was not working well and I ended up replacing the generator armature
It had no mechanical where marks
The charging system was working well now and to my surprise that noise also went away

If you remove the F wire from the regulator it will disable the generator output and see if the noise goes away

^Great minds think alike! I

^Great minds think alike! I did indeed remove the field wire from the genny, and indeed the noise didn't go away. As I said before, I think I am now on track to ID it as the release bearing or clutch rod. I'm going to try a bit of spray lube on the clutch rod to see if it quiets the noise a bit, and if it does, out will come the bearing.

Thanks again for the advice,

Icarus
