I compared the amount of play in the counter shaft and it appears to be consistent with the video posted here, so that may not be linked to the issue as I originally thought. Here's the play by play...I'd appreciate any thoughts...
Bike on rear stand, idling in gear (rear tire spinning)...if I give it any gas then let off I notice a "chunk" sound, then as soon as I get the gas back on again I hear the same sound. Under normal circumstances I could write it off as a by-product of the rear tire not being under any rolling friction, but I notice the same sound/feeling when riding on the street if I get the bike moving in gear, pull the clutch all the way in and transition the throttle on/off/on (without releasing the clutch)...like blipping for a downshift, but without the shift.
I'm no mechanic, but I've been doing basic maintenance on my cars and bikes since I was old enough to ride/drive. This one is outside my comfort zone, so I'm open to any and all advice.
