Clanking noise while running

Hi,
I have a 2003 Honda Shadow 750, and about a week ago, I started getting a clanking noise when I was accelerating in 1st gear coming from the bottom of the bike, basically between my feet. It sounds like someone is putting a ruler into a running fan and feels like it partially disengages from gear. At first I thought it might be clutch, but it started happening while just cruising along in any gear. My guess is Tranny, but not sure...

Many thanks for any ideas or comments.

Does the engine make the noise when you're at a stand still if you rev the engine in neutral?

Also, have you inspected the drive chain as well as both the front (drive) sprocket and the rear (driven) sprocket? Could also be the rear wheel damper which helps absorb any of that herky/jerky feel from the chain drive? Without actually hearing the sound though it's hard to tell....
Good luck,
Phil

Put your hand on the water pump and see if that's where the noise is coming from. I just posted about this same noise

Thank you, I know it's hard without hearing it. No, it doesn't make any noise when it's not running. I will ck the water pump, but it really sounds like it's coming from between my feet...I'm fearing tranny...
