Yep, fix that input shaft bearing before the whole thing is ruined (or not, its only about $1600 for a new axle).

My 2011 muffler rattled like crazy, so purchased a performance exhaust from Plowmans (about 4 months ago) and the noise was gone. However, just last weekend the noise returned. I'm hoping it's bad gasoline, but will remove the muffler to inspect welds.

The mount for the starter generator is known for the weld breaking which can sound like spinning a bicycle tire and let a playing card slap the spokes.

It has been my experience that the Yamaha, being a relatively large bore single cylinder (thumper in the motorcycle world), tends to be louder than the EZ-Go twin cylinder. Of course, then EZ-Go went to the Kawi engine and I've no experience with that one.
