Trying to locate the source of a noise in the swingarm area. For a while I have noticed a "clicking" sound that seems to be coming from the middle of the bike under the motor. If I stand on the pegs and rock side to side I hear this clicking sound. It sounds like two pieces of metal slipping past each other like if the frame was cracked and you were twisting the frame. I'm almost positive it's coming from the swingarm and it seems to be loudest right where the U joint is located. I can't see the joint being sloppy enough to make a noise when I rock the bike and not show up under use. First thought was the bearings but I can't see any play in the swingarm. I know I'll have to pull the swingarm and check everything out. Just wanted to get some suggestions from the experts before I tear into it.
