Call me old fashioned, but I would think that if it goes away when you pull in the clutch, that it is clutch related. But, what do I know. I'm just the 800lb gorilla in the room.

Are you running the recommended oil? At one point I added 20-50 to my ride and the engine ticking and the transmition clunk became louder so after about 1000 miles on that oil I went back to factory recommended oil and it all stoped.
