I rode the bike last night and now today when trying to start it up I now have a hard metal tinging/clanking noise. Can anyone help with what this sound could be? Had no issues last night. Below is a link to a video of it....

I dont know the last time the belts were changed. I just picked up the bike and it is a 1991 that has been kept in climate controlled storage and only has 10,000 miles. I removed the lower right cover and can see the belt (can only see one side) looks to be in good condition. I turned the motor over by hand and was able to get recreate the noise again....

That is nasty,broken belt I think,one should make changing belts before cranking after setting a long time.

I took the covers off and everything looks to be aligned correctly and new belts installed. Any other ideas? I am able to turn the engine over by hand and have now heard it on both sides. When it makes the noise it is not consistent. Potentially a stuck lifter or similar?

Is the video with the bike on the centerstand,I wonder if the driveshaft might have failed and that’s what you hear.

It was originally not on the side stand when i heard it but then I moved it onto the stand to start taking it apart. Sounds like it's coming from the front of the bike.

Look around the alternator area,the rubber dampers may have failed and it makes the sound sound like it’s coming from elsewhere,pull the clutch in and try that

The lifter lost its prime,put some sea foam in the oil and rune it,might reprime,looks like it’s not a unknown on 1500,is your oil need changed,most likely hav3 to replace the lifter

huum I don’t quite understand why a valve would be bent,if it loses lifter the spring would keep the vavlve closed?

Big difference between a stuck valve and a lifter not lifting.

So which one was it🤷🏻‍♀️
sea foam into the carb wouldn’t have any effect on-a lifter but unless it was an intake valve I don’t see where it would have any effect on the valve,seems like it just fixed itself by letting it run

The issue was the intake valve being sticky. The seam foam into and past the carb loosened it up to run freely. Lifters had not issues just sticky intake valve.
