CTR3 has clicking sound in rear of flywheel, ideas?

As the flywheel rotates, there is a clicking sound coming from the rear of the wheel. This started a month ago, but I can't figure out how to get into the area without damaging the machine.

Rear wheel clicking

Could be caused by worn wheel bearings if the clicking is not intermittent. If the clicking only occurs when pedaling and sounds rhythmic, this could be caused by the chain and/or sprocket. Some 6 and 7 speed sprockets are renowned for this rhythmic sound under pressure but it doesn't seem to be a serious problem.

Grinding metal sound over 30 mph

I believe that your Subaru has a transmission issue. There are quite a few things that will make a grinding noise. Wheel bearings, worn out brakes, damaged brake rotors or drums, loose or damaged brake calipers, defective hardware kit (for the brake shoes), torque converter, flywheel, U-joints, and CV joints. The interesting part of your symptoms is that you can only hear the grinding between 30-60MPH. I think you need to continue testing and inspecting components, one by one. You have all ready narrowed your search down. You know that the Brakes, CV joints, and Bearings are fine. So now you need to focus on the drive train. Inspect as much as you can from the flywheel, to the transmission, the drive shaft and rear axel, and the output shaft and front drive axel. If you can not find it yourself it may be time to send it in for repair. Let me know if you have any questions or new information, good luck.

I just bought a 1987 Kawasaki Ninja GPZ 750R that needs carb tune/rebuild attention. Get it home and first day starting it up it immediately backfired. Now the starter just buzzes, sounds like it is...

I will try to make a suggestion, but Fixya has a motorcycle section and you are listed in the cars and trucks section.
Starters have an end part called a bendix. When the starter turns, the bendix expands on the starter shaft. This puts the gear against the flywheel. In your case, it seems the gear extended and failed to recoil back out of the way.
This is why there is no clearance now. Two different approaches to creating clearance are to remove the starter endcap and grab the stator and twist it to unscrew the extended bendix to a compact size. Or remove the sparkplugs, jack the rear wheel off the ground and engage the transmission, then rotate the rear wheel in a manner to imitate reverse.
By reversing the rotation of the wheel, it should reverse the rotation of the engine flywheel and spin the broken bendix into place. By removing the sparkplugs you eliminate an accidental ignition and you all but eliminate compression.
An extra pair of hands to wiggle the starter would help as the rear wheel is turned.
Carburetion problems can be caused by bloated gaskets. Any carb built before Ethenol was distributed will swell and block fuel ports. In Automotive, these newer gaskets for Ethenol are blue, I can not say about Motorcycle applications.
It should be possible to remove the starter either way.

No spark, when you shake the fly wheel there is somthing moving inside. does that mean its bad?

Other than rotating in a circle, the flywheel should be rock solid when lifted up and down and left and right. It sounds like the crank bearings are bad. This can (if bad enough) cause the magnets on the flywheel to rub against the coils thus killing any spark. If the flywheel is rock solid, then remove it and see what is causing the rattle. It could be just a screw that has come loose and is grounding out the coil.

When i put the bike into gear it will not move. You can hear grinding from the rear. Any ideas?

That sounds like the bevel box gears at the rear wheel or the drive shaft to them
Pull back the rubber boot at rear of engine to check if shaft is rotating
remove rear wheel & check the output shaft from the bevel box is rotating
If not then remove bevel box & check splined join to drive shaft

Rattle in rear

I've had both rear wheel bearings go on my 2003 Sedona. Both made this same rattling sound. It's about a $300 job.

I have a 2007 Specialized s works roubaix. I have a ''clicking sound under load only that ''seems'' to be coming from the crank because it clicks at every rotation of the crank. the bike has about 3500...

I can tell you by my own experience that the click at every rotation is because the bearings on the BB, I had the same in my bicycle and after install a new crankset and BB it went away. I installed a Shimano Deore Hollowtech II and it works nicely and no noise.

Sounds like a clunking noise, like the sound you hear when you have a flat tire, Tire isnt flat. turning right on the wheel lessons the sound but stays the same turning left. noise seems to be getting...

its a wheel bearing. .will need to be inspected to determine the correct one. Also tires could also do this if the steel seperated internally. Rotate the suspected tire to see if it follows the tire.
