Default Re: Random scratching noise inside clutch shaft

I've also removed the engine chain from the wheel to isolate the bike, the bike alone doesn't make the noise at all.

I suspect there is something wrong within inside the clutch shaft( not sure if thats what you call it),
but I don't know how to open up the thing. I've read a thread here that you just need a flat screw, wedge it between the two prongs, tried it but it keeps rolling including the wheel.

Is there an easy way to open this clutch shaft part.

It says With the clutck pucks removed there is noise while rolling the bike ,,could it be the little ball bearings behind the big gear that never get oiled on the clutch side?
