Knocking in clutch or engine?

I have a 2018 Kingquad 500. There is a knocking sound coming from around the clutch or engine, can't quite pin point it. The mechanic at the dealership said it was normal initially, but it has become more noticeable over time and now there is a scrapping sound also, both increase with RPM. Any ideas or has any one else experienced similar issues?

Sounds like something rubbing...belt....secondary...a stuck secondary weight... take the CVT cover off and run it (stay a safe distance away so as not to get caught up in spinning parts)...and see if you can determine the source of the noise... a mechanics stethoscope might help.... or take a video and post it here for us to see and hear...

Do you have a winch installed? Mine was knocking off the fair lead part and making a metal on metal noise that was driving me crazy for a few days then finally figured it out and was thankful that's what it was... just checking ya never know. Good luck though.
