I was riding my 750 last weekend and all of the sudden it started making a weird knocking noise. Coming from flywheel side. Anyone have any idea of what it can be?

Anyway I can upload videos?
You can upload videos to a YouTube account, then post a link in a post on any forum.



By flywheel side you mean the left side..opposite the belt side. If the flywheel slipped at all it wouldn't run and there's nothing there that could make that noise and still run except....a rod bearing. Check the oil..see if it's full and looks normal.

Ok I will work on the video part. But I took out the flywheel and it’s all scraped up and chipping on the inside. Oil has tiny gold shavings in it.

Gold shavings is not good. The only thing inthere that is gold color is the babbit type bearing in the engine cover which is the crank bearing.
Bobby Beam from revzcycles has upgraded crank kits and a fix for the babbit bearing gets replaced with an automotive type roller bearing.
