A few months back i got hung up in a mud hole and ever since i've had a clicking noise from the right rear axle.I thought I would find some kind of obvious damage with the inside cv joint ,ball bearing cage assembly .I thought i read wear they could crack or break . When i turn right it sounds like it clicks like i've heard fwd cars do when wore out. How freely should the ball bearings move in the cage or should there be any slack or play in them.Havent taken the outside boot off shaft yet fixin to do that. Any help would be great.

i have the same issue with the left side of mine. it makes some noise only when i am in a sharp turn. i am leaning toward (and hoping also) that it is a wheel bearing issue instead of an axle issue. just wanna throw that out there to ya in hopes that it may be the same in your case also. wheel bearings are much cheaper than cv's.

May want to check your brakes. Had it happen 2-3 years ago on one of my 650s! Sounded just like a cv joint!

Clicking will most likely be a CV joint. A wheel bearing usually sounds like more of a grinding noise.
