Haven't synced the carbs and I'm a noob so I'm looking into making a diy kit soon to do it.

Not sure what the splines are, but I'll Google it.

Nope, in neutral.

Clutch basket or maybe a busted damper plate.
I'll check into those, but does the primary chain connect to the starter sprocket? I've had to replace the starter to get it running again. You think I may have the sprocket sitting in the chain wrong? I know it tilts when you take it the starter, but I didn't think I'd be able to put it back on unless I had everything lined up properly.

Describe how you synced the carbs,they would have to be way out for it too be that loud and it would rattle on idle.
Odometer reading is 64028. When giving it throttle with the clutch held in it revs like a champ with no knocking, but letting out the clutch and revving makes it louder. Is that the metal cover that looks like it takes a giant Flathead? Looks tight.

Rattles on idle with clutch out.

At the same time shift the transmission through all the gears. Does the noise go away. Usually 4th and/or 5th is the issue. Maybe try putting the bike on the centerstand and rotate the rear wheel in neutral. Use quick motions back and forth as well as rotating normally in both directions. Can you hear a clunk or other noise then? This test eliminates the chain. The transmission gears only rotate when the clutch lever is out when the engine is running. . You might start by taking the clutch out but I am afraid the issue is deeper inside and the engine will need to be removed. Sad because the motor seems to run really well.
It's in neutral and I've played with the tire, but I can't get it to budge with my hand. Tried playing with neutral a bit, but no change.

Yes, there definitely could be a connection to the noise and the starter.

Don't do it. Dennis is the head of an Oldwing theft ring. You give him even a hint of where you are and what you've got and you'll be Wingless.
