05 Midnight Silverado with 14,500 miles. I started noticing a noise when letting off the throttle...kinda like a low rumble. It goes away if I engage the clutch. If the bike is just sitting at idle, there is no noise. Anyone with an idea?

Look for road debri under the drive belt front pulley cover.this can make lots of noise and it sounds like the clutch?i took my cover off and blew mine out. No more noise.

Turns out when I aligned the rear wheel, I had the drive belt too tight. I just loosened it a little and the noise is gone. I also tried downshifting kinda hard to see if the belt would slip/chirp and all seems fine. :cool:
