I only get noise at tight turns on pavement with the clutch depressed.
No, if you were withing spec, chances are you are good to go. And what I was referring to in my above post about how you finesse the throttle applies to what you wrote about tight turns with the clutch in. You will discover that if you are in a parking lot, you will need to apply just a slight amount of throttle when making those tight turns, believe it or not. That quiets things right down!
