Hi, Mike I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost.

Hi, Mike before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries. The following is a list of usual suspects that will cause your bike not to turn over.
1. Ignition Switch is in the "OFF" position.
2. Ignition Switch is faulty.
3. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
4. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
5. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
6. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
7. FOB battery low or dead.
8. Faulty ignition switch.
9. Faulty starter button.
10. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
11. Security alarm needs a reset.
12. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
13. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
14. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
15. Faulty ignition relay.
16. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
17. Check for engine trouble codes.

The CDI is not easy to diagnose because the observable symptoms of a faulty CDI box can lead to different directions. Sometimes, a bad CDI does not cause sparks at all. Again, when a CDI box is about to go bad, it can lead to misfires, issues with starting, rough running or even stall the motor.

broken ignition wire on the start circuit. ON any unit when you are in the run position you have a resistor ed wire that runs the system
when in start you have a circuit that is not resister-ed so that you get full voltage to the system for starting to compensate for the voltage drop when the starter is engaged . If there is no power in the start ignition system , then there is either a break in that wire or a faulty ignition/ start switch

Hi, Petglow and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/system overfilled.
2. Faulty breather valve.
3. Engine breather hose bent, pinched, kinked, etc.
4. The air filter has too much "pre-oil".
5. Crankshaft seal failure allowing transmission fluid to migrate.
6. Blow by drain tube cracked/split or filled to capacity.

Google or library has similar text. What is the problm w bike

You might need a workshop manual for this one. If you are in ANY doubt at all, PAY A MECHANIC TO DO IT. The Cam sprockets and the Crank sprocket will have set markings on them. These will line up with matching markings on the engine block.
**NOTE** I am NOT familiar with this Particular engine.**
Generally CAM marks are usually at the 3 o'clock, (exhaust), and 9 o'clock, (intake), positions NOT TDC!!
The CRANK marks are usually at the 12 o'clock position, known as TDC. I think your engine has a 'notch' on the crank pulley and a raised line mark on the engine block.
