Dude needs help

Hello everyone, my first post is one of desperation, I can't figure out what is wrong with the bike metal grinding sound you can feel, coming from the crankcase clutch or somewhere in the engine. I uploaded a couple video to YouTube on my son's account I'll try to put it on here .

Dude, remove the stator/ cover on the left side of the engine, remove all the bolts around the perimeter of the cover, they should be 3 6mm Allen's, 4 5mm Allen's, and the 10mm Allen plug in the middle, I would bet money that the Magnets in the stator rotor let loose and are grinding up your stator/ getting thrown into the engine. There is an updated rotor available from RMstator for right around $200.
Let us know what you find, and good luck!
