When the tire is spun in the reverse direction "on the lift" there is a clicking coming from the front sprocket area about every full rotation. Is this normal? :banghead:

Every revolution of what? The wheel or the output shaft? Exactly every revolution, or randomly, or synchronized with the passage of one chain link?

It's possible that you knocked a tooth off of a trans gear. Since only 4th and 5th turn with the output shaft in neutral with a dead engine, it would have to beone of those two. And since you have said it's synchronous with the output shaft, it would be one of the gears on that shaft if it was a trans gear at all.

Use a stethoscope or a long rod to listen to the noise and see if it comes from inside the trans. Put the bike in 4th, and then 5th with the engine off, and push it backwards.

Probably wouldn't be a good idea to ride it until it is repaired.....Sounds like money is a factor so why create more expense by riding it more while broken..
If the engine hasn't been freshened up for a while doing the top end would be
