Default Yet another problem

This past Saturday me and 3 of my buddies went for a 200 mile cruise. When I got home everything was great besides how dirty the bike was from the rain storm that we got caught in. Yesterday I get on it to go to work and I notice this weird sound. The sound is a rhythmic rattling sound that only happens when am slowing down with the clutch engaged (lever out) As soon as I disengage the clutch (pull the clutch in) the sound goes away. It doesn't make the sound when maintaining speed or accelerating and it doesn't happen when I am in N at a stop light with then clutch engaged. Everything on the bike feels that exact same. Any thoughts as to what can be causing this?

Man I really hope its not my clutch. The things that leads me to believe it is not is the clutch feels good and the sound is only when slowing down. I would think if it was the clutch it would make the sound while accelerating and I would think I would really hear it while at a stop light but nothing. I really have no idea though I am just thinking out loud.

That was my logic as well. There is a Honda dealer on the way home from work I think I will stop at. Its $20 to adjust the chain so I'll try that first.

People like you the dealers love! You really need to learn how to fix simple stuff like that because once you have to adjust, it keeps on having to be adjusted from wear.

But on that note, when you pull in the clutch, you can hear everything. Let it out and you hear your engine. You're probably hearing your chain.

Wait I read that backwards. Clutch in, no noise? Clutch out, noise?? It's not your chain if so.
