Problems with too much grease in clutch?

So I took off my primary to clean it and realized I really should have an impact screwdriver so I have tabled it for now until I can get one. I have watched videos on Youtube and feel pretty good about doing it. Someone else has already worked on it (just bought it used). I noticed that there seems to be ALOT of grease in there. From what I have read/watched you should have about a tablespoon of grease in each roller "journal" and maybe a bit more here and there, but this guy has a poop load in there. The clutch has always seemed noisy to me, and when I took it to the Yamaha dealer to have a plow put on, the service mentioned it also. So my question is, could there be too much weight from the grease causing a "whirring" noise. I am sure that is somewhat normal, but mine seems pretty loud. This is my first grizz and first ATV for that matter. Thanks.

The excessive grease in your primary is probably from yamaha. I couldn't believe how much grease the factory uses in these things.

My clutchs also have a bit of a whinny noise at around 10km/h and always made a low knocking noise that's sounds like a bad con rod. It's always done since before and after a full service to both clutchs. I have two coworkers with grizzlys that reported simular noises to mine. It is my understanding that these are normal ultramatic noises.
