Hello all zephyr owners out there, I have a 750 zephyr with a metal angainst metal rumbling noise from the gearbox or clutch when idling. Can anyone tell me if this is normal or what could be the cause of the problem?

Because its somewhat 'normal' for a cold 750 engine to sound like a pile of nuts and bolts in a cement mixer, and this wall of sound is difficult to pinpoint, without actually hearing the sound its difficult to say if its one of the fixable 'normal' noises or something else.

Any chance of a taking a short video with a half decent sound recording with your mobile phone and posting it up? Don't ask me how one uploads video's (still pics I know) but someone I'm sure will advice if your unsure.
