Who are you calling old joey?:D I have a 1500 and have'nt noticed any change in sound when the clutch is depressed, I'm sure you'll get some other opinions, especialy about the old gold wingers part:eek:

Welcome from Florida Joey. Yes,mine changes also. If things get louder i will be concerned. Keep in mind,there are a lot of things rotating in there even in neutral.Mine has 119k on it,what's the odometer say on yours? I'm over 50,so i guess that's old?

Welcome from Canada joey. I have a 91 Aspy with 160k km's and I do notice a slight noise when in neutral and pulling in the clutch. It kinda sounds like you would expect it to, if that makes any sense :).
No worries.

On my 93 it makes a sound when the bike is in neutral, pull the lever and it stops. It seems normal to me.

Joey, there is a very faint kind of gear noise in my 1800 when in neutral. Squeezing the clutch in seems to lessen it. I didn't use a stethoscope to check it, just my ear down close to the trans. Unless you start hearing something real loud or nasty, I wouldn't worry. BTW I bought my first Wing when I was 27, 1984 GL1200I, ye can do the math.
