your main bearing maybe going. has it sort of gotten worse over time? if so,
this may be it, if it doesn't affect performance though, don't try to fix it
yet. only when your performance drops, then you take it apart. use my motto
on repairing mopeds and scooters "don't try to fix it if it ain't broken".
sounds dumb huh? well, you don't know how many people it's helped.
