Default 89 4 speed tranny

Hi all.

Having some trouble with my 89 1200 tranny. rattle/clicking sounds ONLY in 4 gear. It happens in different parts in rpm range and its not there all the time.
Have grinded the sprocket cover also because of 23t sprocket, cant ser any rubbing there.
Could it be mainshaft bearing?

Any tips?

I'd focus on the 23t sprocket first. It may not be seated correctly or has a little play on the shaft.
