Drive shaft clunking
I started hearing a rattling sound when I go over bumps at slow speeds. So today when I washed the bike I put it up on the center stand and moved the back wheel forward and backwards while in gear, it made a clunking sound after about 6" of travel in both directions. Slight build up of oil around the rubber around the final drive. Check fluid and it looked good. It is usually changed every oil change, sometimes every other change. When I move the wheel in neutral, it does not make the sound and feels smooth.
Any ideas what could be bad? I am thinking some kind of universal joint in there somewhere.
Bike has 82,000 miles and is a daily driver back roads for about 45 mins a day back and forth to work. Not much stop and go, only 2 stop signs between my house and work.
