Probably not the clutch but rather the bearing in the motor plate (inner primary). The bearing that is on the transmission output shaft.

There is an adjustment to the hydraulic type clutch but it is at the other end called the, 'clutch pack' thickness, basically.

The closer you release the clutch from the grip, the thicker the pack.
The farther out the release of the clutch lever at the grip, the more worn the pack has shrunk or say you burned the back plates first.

See, upon collapse, the first to grab are the accordion plates [farthest from the pressure plates] that are folding down on each other. That chatter or noise could be clutch break or clutch chatter. Kind of breaking lose on each pulse of the engine. But it happens so fast, you sort of hear that cha-cha-chatter kind of bucking, right?

Like you said, if it was a bearing, it might roll noise in the constant; if it was loaded in said direction say. One way however, is when you can swerve to one side with the car, hear a wheel bearing noise under one load, but quiet if you snap the wheel the other way, the noise goes away.

Without that pack distance known, hot rod the bike like speed shift and see if the engine spins up and you go no place. It's a worn clutch pack is another guess we thought out the bearing.

^^^^ I'll agree with the latter comment...sounds like an "out of adjustment" clutch pack.

Unless she's got thousands & thousands of miles I'd check your adjusatment. Then again maybe some scooby owned the bike and didn't understand the concept of how to use a clutch and burnt the fucker up.......

There is no adjustment in the scope of a hydraulic clutch assembly.

A hydraulic clutch is self adjusting.

Mess with it and you may cause more problems that you want!
