quick I replaced my clutch springs and plates...having to remove exhaust pipes, covers etc...did the job with ease...replaced everything, filled back up with oil...adjusted cable etc...then took for ride...runs nice...but...
I had not noticed this before but now I hear a slight sound occasionally while in gear going down sounds like keys is coming from the same side of the clutch basket...I can't make out exactly where because its not constant...I have double checked all bolts and nothing is loose, no rattling due to vibration...I can not figure out what it is but since I had just done clutch, I am concerned I didn't do something right or didnt tighten springs enough or left my watch in the clutch assembly....
Does anyone have any clue what that noise might be...right side middle bike sounds like keys and is not contant...thanks

Wow, thanks IronMan.
I had a slight slip that I noticed starting on the 03 vl800 I'm working on. Took all the side covers off and followed your advice. Cleaned and lubed any and everything---even washed out grime that had been hidden under half the bike.
Test drove after adjustment and later made a further tweak. Test drove again and discovered everything remarkably smooth, with no slip at all. Major difference in shifting resistance and noise. Buttoned it back up--good to go!
