When I pull away on my 2010 Gilera Fuoco there is a "clacking" noise from the transmission.
I have had the cover off to check and all looks well as far as I can see.
Could it be the clutch unit?
Any advice would be welcome.
Thanks

Are the washers all present and in the correct order?

Unless the shoes are worn, I am guess the clutch assembly is making contact with the cover.

Thank you for your reply.
I take it the the clutch comes off as a unit?
What should I be looking for in the way of spacers/washers?
Thanks

Yes, the clutch comes off as a complete assembly.

Take a look at the diagram attached, particularly parts# 16 through 19.

The washers must be present and placed in the correct size and order. Another possibility is that the nut (part#16) is not tightened to spec.

Warning: Do NOT start the engine with the clutch cover removed or it will instantly disintegrate the clutch assembly.

Thanks again for the information.
The diagram gives no indication of washer sizes
I will give it a try but it might be too technical for me,
What is the correct torque setting for the nut?
Thanks again
