hi everyone
my 03 MC has just starting making a whirring noise from the front passenger side. its quite loud when im driving along and when i start to slow down. it seems to stop when i put my foot on the clutch, as i raise the clutch it sounds like its grinding a little. it doesnt do it when the car is idle just when im driving. someone please help + any idea of how much it will cost to fix. thanks

The Clutch release bearing can make a whirring noise if worn but often goes away when you depress the clutch?
This is not normally serious ( just an annoying noise) or an expensive part but to replace it often involves nearly as much dismantling and labour to get at, as replacing the whole clutch assembly so would only be done when including a clutch replacement if possible.
Best have it checked out to confirm the exact cause before deciding what to do. :)
