    Check your fowls and covers are fastened down tight and the flywheels not catching on the inside of its cover.

    This might sound random, but check your rear hub and tyre. I had a simlar problem and the rim had come loose from the hub and elongated the holes in the rim. And when you pushed it would clunk as the wheel is rocking. And I'd check that pretty sharpish too Wink
