Sounds bad, i would have a mech inspect it. it could be bearings. does your clutch perform fine otherwise?

check for a bad float. a float with a hole in it will 'sink' and thus, not turn the gas supply off when required.
Let me know what you find.

Unfortunately, you can get noise from the transmission, clutch basket,
drive shaft, pinion gears or rear wheel on the Royal Star. No way to
tell which you have so:
Barring a failure of the clutch basket, a change to a multi-grade synthetic oil THAT DOES NOT HAVE AN ENERGY-CONSERVING SEAL ON THE BOTTLE will quiet gear and clutch noise. Energy-conserving oils tend to make a wet clutch slip. Try Shell Rotella-T (T6) synthetic, available at Walmart for about $19.00 a gallon, I've got 111,000 on a Tour Deluxe with it, and it just keeps going...
The drive shaft on the Royal Star can also make noise if both ends are not properly lubricated; tourers have found that Honda Moly 60 paste on both ends at about 15,000 mile intervals will eliminate that aggravation.
Hypoid gears in the final drive can also be noisy. Short of having the drive disassembled and replacement shims installed, changing to a good synthetic 75W-140 lubricant will quiet or eliminate the whine.
Splines and pins in the final drive and rear wheel assembly can also cause noise. Remove the rear wheel, put a thin layer of Honda Moly 60 paste on the pins, dampers and in the drive spline, ditto with the mating spline on the final drive. I relubricate all of these every time I change rear tires, probably more often than necessary, but it's convenient to do when the wheel is off.

It's located under the left rear cylinder side cover. Loosen the three bolts holding the side cover to the cylinder; you'll find a "trapdoor" into the crankcase. Open the "trapdoor:, and the cylinder bleeder will be immediately beneath it.

The RSV uses a hydraulic actuated clutch...so there is no adjustments.
Periodic maintenance involves replacing the brake fluid in the clutch, and bleeding the air out of the slave cylinder.
The single spring on the clutch itself tend to get weak and cause slippage....Barnett offers a kit to replace the spring with a heavier duty one.
Its also very important to use motor oil that does not have the energy conserving symbol as it will promote clutch slippage in the wet plate clutch in the Venture.
