When your on the throttle there is a constant load on your drive line. Pulling in the clutch takes the load off & allows the parts of the drive line to float & the joints get some free play. 5th gear & over 50 suggests that 5th gear might have some play that might be excessive. If this is not the case, how long has it been sense you had the rear tire off for replacement? When it was off were the drive gears coated with Molly 50 paste as a lubricant? When you put the bike on the center stand, get the rear wheel up off the ground & double check it for excessive play side to side just for safety.
If ya cant fix it with a hammer, it's prolly lectrical
