It can also be a little worn clutch pack, booster, or old style basket..

I don't know, but if it runs fine, and everything looks fine instead of some strange noises, I'd use it as is until she fells apart. I know - I know preventative maintenance.. but it just takes out the joy of the ride (the constant worries) and sometimes going in front of the problems won't make it cheaper.. Just my $0.02, but I'd ride it until some more serious symptoms.

But if you are on the paranoid side, and enjoy wrenching more than riding, then you can always strip down the engine, change some gaskets, retorque some bolts, etc.. just to find out everything was alright
