Right next to the crankshaft gear are two shafts that support the lower belt gears. Each has two bearings, the outer one being a sealed ball bearing, and they are known to fail. One thing you could try is to remove the inner fender and the two belt guards, and use a stethoscope to try and pinpoint the noise. Idler bearings are easy to replace, but those lower bearings are not. I agree that it would be wise to find the problem before you have a disaster. -Steve
