Spinning noise at front of engine/clutch area

Hey everyone. I have researched this to death but haven't found the exact problem.

2001 Honda Foreman 500 Rubicon with Auto and ES.
Drives Great, Shifts Great, forward reverse no problems.
PROBLEM: In neutral when i apply throttle there is a spinning noise coming from the front i believe the clutch area. It sounds like one of the chains rubbing against the tensioner. If you can picture that. In gear goes away. The oil seems very runny. Also after about 30 min of riding it made a funny noise like the clutch slipped but then went away.
Could i have a bad spring in the clutch? Or is it bad oil?

i would pull the oil tank and front cover off. it could be the one way bearing or clutch may need repair. you can also check the oil pump and timing chains while the cover is off. if you do pull oil tank off i would split it and check and clean the fine screen in it.

it sounds like you need an oil change to play it safe....

Why is it that I always lean to one side when I'm reading your posts?
