Thanks for the suggestions guys. I think i will ride out this oil change, and come the next one I will pop the clutch cover off and take a peak. I rode it all round town today, got a wide variety of riding in, and actually today the transmission did pretty good. No odd behavior, but the lash was still there of course. My buddy thinks this is just an age thing, and that most bikes develop a non-zero amount of drive train lash just with miles, and that it in itself isn't all too bad. Maybe I am blowing this out of proportion? It is my first and only bike at this time, so I don't know much else.
Maybe my rushing to sell was a little too soon. Perhaps at the higher mileage, I should shorten my oil change interval or something of the like. Does anyone have a bike with like 50+ thousand miles with drivetrain or transmission lash not a real issue at all? Maybe the other day I reported all the issues, I was just having a rough day and my technique was poor or something. I guess it would have to do with riding style as well, I never notice any of this when I'm ripping through the canyon roads, it's mostly the calm rides that it gets to me most.
I'm a little over a third into this oil change interval, so I will report back on any updates or changes, and clutch condition. Thanks for your help guys.
