Default Throwout bearing noise? SuperMiata Twin Clutch

Cars together i'm just getting things sorted with the tune. I'm running a SuperMiata twin clutch but it sounds like i'm getting some throwout bearing or similar noise when clutch is in. Normal or fubar? Car drives great and the clutch feels good.

Just confirming, you do have the clutch pedal adjusted per the instructions that came with the kit? the adjustment is very important. Noise doesn't sound real unusual, they make a little noise.

Could you provide a copy of the clutch adjustment instructions? Appreciate it Ed

No clutch adjustment per se. Just pedal stop and pushrod. Pedal stop is the cruis control switch on top. Pushrod has a lock nut. Make sure there is a tiny bit of free play in pushrod when your foot is off the pedal. You can leave adjustments untouched from OEM and the Race Twin works fine.
You can also adjust so total throw is shorter and pedal sits lower, if you like.

Being a racing twin disc, you will hear various fun noises:
-At idle the engine will shake things that normally are damped by a heavy flywheel. Mainly the transmission input shaft and gears that are not engaged.
-With pedal down, you will hear the floater plate ratting

Street flywheel option reduces noise quite a bit but it still has ah, character.

Thanks Emilio. I was just going to send a picture of the included instructions, but that's better.

Thanks Emilio and Ed just wanted to make sure the noises weren't out of place. Will adjust with Emilio's notes - appreciate it.
