Chirping sound While idling there is a chirping sound coming from the clutch area. Gearbox is in neutral. I recently had the engine serviced, new gaskets and all was good before that. I spoke to the technician and he said that nothing was done to the clutch.

SOURCE: I have a 2006 Royal Star which I just purchased.

There is a clutch basket - can't remember the series number, but I think it may be "E" - that will typically reduce the chirping you're hearing. Many Yamaha dealers have replaced these under warranty.

The chirp is a product of the square-cut gears used in the transmission. They are cut that way to provide more solid contact/meshing, but they can sometimes be noisy. Swapping to synthetic lubricants such as AMSOIL will quiet things down a bit.

I have an '06 RSTD, pearl white, that I've put 42K on. It's a fantastic bike. Just don't ride it like a V-twin. The V-4 wants to rev! So never be afraid to wind 'er up. Think of it as sort of the world's largest sport bike. Oh, you'll probably want to ditch the extremely uncomfortable stock seat for a Mustang or Ultimate seat. The stock seats are the worst on the planet!

2007 Citroen Xsara Picasso (petrol). Weird chirping/warbling sound from disengaged clutch.

indicates that the clutch throw out bearing is failing
it is just touching the pressure plate fingers and that is allowing it to spin haphazardly creating the sounds.
by applying slight pressure the bearing is made to run under load and so the noise stops
when driving in gear it is the same as idling where you hear the noise
the short fix is , transmission out and a new bearing fitted
the long fix is to replace the clutch plate and pressure plate as well as that saves the labour of having to do the job again in the future
use only accredited clutch professional shops with experience on your make of car

Chirping sound after starting

Here's some info I found.
If it's when you lift off the gas, its the dv (diverter valve), it is normal. If you take the airbox cover and filter out you can hear it better. If it sounds like a splash or psshhh, its fine, if it sounds like a rapped goose, you have a blown/torn dv and it needs replacing.
If the sound is coming from the rear it could be a fuel pump.
You can get the trouble codes scanned. Many auto parts stores will have a free loaner meter you can use. Try Advance Auto, AutoZone, VIP, CarQuest etc etc.
