Question Metallic Screech on take off

When taking off quickly in first gear, or if i take off in second gear by mistake - I get a sharp metallic screech on the bike for a split second. I have had the dealer take a look at it - coordinated with BMW which had them measure and inspect everything in the clutch - and was told - we don't know why - but yes we hear it - nothing wrong. The best I can get is that the oil isn't thick enough, but not to change that at this time. Has anyone else had this issue, figured it out, etc??? Thanks

I think it's probably the marshmellow cush rubbers

Mine does this also when I let out the clutch too fast/with too much gas, I don't think it means anything. Don't believe it's the cush rubbers, for me it is the clutch. I have a pretty good 'ear' for mechanical issues and I don't worry about it.

hi guys
mine has done that from day 1 and has been in several times for that, the clutch basket was removed and the oil feed holes were drilled a bit bigger which let more oil stay on the clutches. this worked for a while but I still get the squaak occasionally. the clutch feels a lot better after the re-work.
