All not so well in motoland

Got the Husky all assembled last night. I was feeling good, finished an audio book while working (Xenocide by Orson Scott Card), and found the biggest pain in reassembling the bike was the new Polisport radiator shrouds. They were a snug fit, but they got on there. It was about 10:30pm when I finished, my wife was in bed sick, so figured I'd wait until later to test run the thing.

Ran home at lunch, and couldn't resist firing up the bike. 2 kicks after the float bowl filled with fuel and the engine was up and running. Much to my dismay, I've got the same sound happening that was present when all this first started. Have a look\listen:

I'm beginning to wonder if crank or one of (or both) the crank bearings got messed up from the bolt floating in there. I'm quite bummed as I love how this bike runs\handles, but am thankful that its a mechanical problem and not a personal health issue. Things could be worse.

Time to tear things back apart tonight. XR will get some extra prep for the weekend.
