Could be either but from your description, I'm betting on the U-joint.

I agree, U-joint would be the first thing to look at.

I would, for saftey's sake,closely check for rusted pivot points on the swingarm.Sounds to me if something is out of alignment. Please keep us posted! jimsjinx

just to let you all know bike is fixed. the problem was the bearings in the swingarm replaced them and everything works great, thanks to all for your input it was much needed.
