Really hard to diagnose a "strange clicking noise from somewhere in the back" without actually being able to hear it. There are hundres of possibilities....

Use actual chain lube. Big debate as to whether WD-40 is actually good for it or not. Just buy chain lube and be done with it. It's only $5-10 at a MC shop and it will last a long time, wise investment.

If the chain is "dry" grab your moms fuggin cooking oil and lightly lube it. chain lube is a necessity for bike owners bro. what range are your rpm's in when you hear the "clicking"? are you "lugging" the bike around? If you've been around bikes a long time and you can't lube a chain it sounds as if you need to find new people to ride with.

Could be bearings, could be cush drive, could be chain, could be sprocket, could be chain and sprocket. WD-40 is the DEBIL! Don't put that on your chain, it will dry rot your o-rings.

In "Manvegas" you'll have to drive a bit to get some, but get yourself some actual chain lube. Heat the chain before you lube it (by riding it), if the chain is too dry to ride it, just go get yourself a new chain. Get some sprockets too if the teeth are starting to look like a shark's dorsal fin.

It's probably the chain you're hearing.
