Sounds like the 4th gear shift fork issue.

Take your bike running in neutral, if facing uphill, almost no sound, but downhill lots of noise, it is the 4th gear shift fork.

Need a new motor, since cost to rebuild current one is way more than the cost of a lower mileage replacment.

Mine is in the same condition, I am still riding it till I decide what to do with it.

There is a video here somewhere showing this.

Can you make a video of your noise, post it on YouTube, and paste the link here. FYI ... if you're not able to hear the noise in your video, neither will we.
