Discover 600 miles I ride the highway alot In all weather except ice. Some times I hear a noise coming from the front wheel it may just be the sound of the wheel cutting through the wind but I am just concerned bearings are new (according to seller of bike) no woble everything up front is tight. I can still see a bit of blue grease in the seam between wheel and bearings so could it just be the sound of the rim cutting through the air?

Re: front wheel making nois
Warped rotor will make a noise. So will brake pads that aren't going back into the caliper like they should.
I never saw a 90's NH yet that hadn't warped up the stock rotor. I put a floating rotor on my '92 NH 750 so that it wouldn't warp again and get noisy. It was also cheaper than another Honda rotor. Simple bolt-on fix just don't forget to use some Locktite!
As for the caliper I've never worked on one. ,,

When does the noise occur, while driving only, or driving and idle, in gear, or in neutral and park? If it occurs all the time (while driving and at a stand still in cold weather) it could be the fuel pump. If it occurs only while driving, it may be a wheel bearing. Describe the noise (humming, grinding, whirring, etc), and what is the mileage on the Pilot? Answer my questions so I can fine tune my answer. Thanks!
Maybe one idea. Going to Florida has nothing to do with the noise except makes you scared being away from home. Sometimes front wheel bearings go bad-all of a sudden. Not bad where the wheel will fall off but starting to make a noise like a airplane prop. A humming low pitch sound but almost constant. Not enough to feel it in steering wheel. If this decribes your sound-noise chances that is what it is. DON'T worry you can travel many, many miles with this noise. My mini van started doing it 20,000 miles ago. I got the parts but it's a bear to replace. I hope this helps you. If you need parts go to ebay.
Some is typical and some could be sign of worn u joints Have u joints inspected for loosness When in 4 wheel drive the front and read tires compete with eachother especially when turning causing a hopping or chirping. U joints are under alot of stress in tight turns and might make nois as well again check to see if worn and at the same time lube them if equiped with fittings
Yeah, warped rotor will make a noise. So will brake pads that aren't going back into the caliper like they should.
