When I am in first gear and just starting off I sometimes hear a noise that sounds like a bad CV joint. Like a couple of nuts in a metal can rolling. It's real short basicly I hear it from 0 to about 5 mph. I hope it's not my clutch, but that is what it sounds like. Any ideas?

Check to see that your chain is lubed and and in decent shape. Start there first.

I'd say chain too. Adjust and lube. Also make sure the wheel is aligned right.

I went out last night to check the chain and tried to make the noise happen and relized it seems to happen as I release the clutch lever. It seems to happen when I am at the last point where the clutch plates are coming together. I did lube the chain though.

You were right, the chain was loose. I adjusted the chain this morning and the noise is gone.
Thanks!
