    Have somebody help you spin the crank by pushing up & down on the connecting rods, takes 3 hands (obviously). If you hear the clicking noise, it's bad. Should be quiet and smooth, the needle bearings should be shiny (looked like the one that was shown was shiny).

    does this sound like bad crank shaft that needs to be replaced? or its something that can be fixed pretty easy

    It sounds like you have a rod hitting the side of the crankcase. If you spin it, as suggested, you might be able to feel where its coming from and go from there.

    It doesnt sound like just one noise, but more like a very quick series of metallic noises. Almost like 3 or 4 ball bearings falling on each other in quick succession. I wonder if it is possible the bearing retainers in one of your crank bearings has come apart and is letting some of the ball bearings float around in it.
