weird noise

02 r1150gsa 32k

I hear a slight grinding/whirring/rattle sound that seems to happen mostly during deacceleration. The noise doesn't seem to be coming from the final drive or shaft. I realize it could be a number of things but would appreciate any help to narrow it down.

With the bike on the center stand, rear wheel in the air, bike in 1st gear... what kind of radial play (how far can you move the wheel) do you get? 1", 3"? In my experience, I had a lot of play + - 3"... and my driveshaft completely failed about 3 days later....
