primary drive nut is backing off allowing the gear mesh between the primary drive gear and clutch basket to change.Is there a knock noise at low RPM?

The primary drive nut is not the one holding the basket on.Not much goes wrong with these YZ450 engines,but we have seen a couple primary drive nuts come loose since 03.

Can remember mine makeing a whining noise when it was newer too, but only noticed it when riding tight trees, Never knew if it was clutch abuse or just getting hotter than normal or both. 90 hrs later and nothings gone bang!
