Service woes

I just did my second service on my R1200GSA and changed the Engine Oil with Filter, Transmission Oil and the Final Drive oil along with lubing the splines

However I have 2 issues that I am not sure if I should be concerned about...

1) The engine oil is "cloudy" in the sight even after running the engine for a few minutes

2) There appears to be a rattling coming from the clutch or transmission assembly, the ratting disappears as soon as the clutch is pulled in so we assume its the clutch. The rattle also goes away when the bike is revved up to more than a 1000rpm

Should I be concerned about any of this?

Don't sweat either. The "cloudy" oil is just clean oil mixing with some moisture and dirty oil in the crank case. It will be fine.

The clutch rattle is common. Louder on some than others, louder still as the miles pile on. My 05 with 120K miles sounds like a Ducati dry clutch.
