There are a few things that can go wrong in there so heed Tom's advice as he has first hand experience. If you hear any noise at all shut it down. It can go from bad to worse quickly. You may not even need to test ride. If you can spin the wheels in each gear then start it up on the stand and shift into each gear.
Optionally remove the left side cover and see if anything is loose.
