I know this is not what you were looking to hear, but, take it to your local servicing dealer. They should be able to look at it and give you a real quick idea whether its worth fixing or not.

No offense, but your description is so vague, it could be anything from the bearing in the lower end of the shaft, to the clutch, the flywheel, or something more serious inside. Your local servicing dealer will have the training and expertise to quickly give you an idea whether to fix or pitch.

Good luck
