I've begun noticing a slight clicking sound that matches the speed of my rear wheel when my '05 ex500 is not putting power to the wheel. In other words, when coasting to a stop or with the bike on the center stand and I spin the rear wheel.

It seems to be coming from the rear of the engine - like the tranny area.

Any ideas of what it could be or if I need be concerned?

thanks in advance for your advice!

Probably just a little slop in the cush drive. You could shim it out if you want to take off the rear wheel. Or don't worry about it.

Check the front sprocket area. Gonna have to remove the plastic cover. Clean out the area if needed.

I dunno, he hasn’t updated it in 15 YEARS! Gonna have to guess no. 😁
