    I would1st check your Clutch & Clutch cable for proper adjustment and while you are at it make sure that your primary oil is the proper oil and up to the proper level.

    Later,

    It is possible your clutch hub bearing is going south on you, its the bearing on the main shaft.

    You have to pull the clutch to check it.

    When you release clutch it engages transmission,could just be gears.
    If it just a slight change in sound its normal.

    Clutch noise that i reported earlier turned out to be a major problem for me. Had to replace transmission mainshaft as it had scored so badly from bearing failure, replaced with all new bearings and seals bike is running fine now.Wish i'd purchased extended warranty but such is life.

    Didn't mention mileage on bike or transmission fluid that was being used at the time. That info can make it easier to understand the failure and not let history repeat itself.

    And helps many sitting on the fence about what fluids to use make a more educated decision.
