Question about 2007 Maico 500 Enduro

1 Answer

Brakes When I have my bike up on the centerstand and rotate the wheel I can hear a quiet metal against metal rubbing sound. I think it is the rear brake dragging. I've been told by other people that it is normal for disc brakes to drag a bit and maybe it is by design to keep dirt and debris from getting between the brake and wheel. Does this sound right?

Yep sounds about normal. Quiet is fine when it gets loud or pronounced then you may have dragging issues. But it sounds like your O.K.,,,

My suzuki burgman 650 will not go into gear


Most likely, the switch for the centerstand is stuck in the depressed position, a relatively common situation. The centerstand switch, which is exposed to road debris underneath the bike, often accumulates grime and periodically needs to be cleaned. The centerstand switch's purpose is to prevent damage to the CVT when the bike is on the centerstand, and thereby has no rotational resistance. When the centerstand switch is "stuck", the ECU thinks the bike is still on the centerstand and prevents the CVT from shifting up to a higher gear.

Just jack the vehicle to the side you hear the noise put a stand and turn the wheel with your hands and listen.I believe is not rim,possible is the wheel bearing. Give it a test.

I hear a rubbing sound when i go down the road.when i slow up it stops,when i speed up it gets louder.it is coming from the front wheels i think.i just had the brakes done about a month ago???? help


Have the front wheel bearings checked they are a sealed unit that has to be pressed in or assembly removed and replaced. Or your brakes are dragging and rubbing against the rotor it could be the caliper is sticking or the rotor doesn't have enough wave, warp cut in it to push the pads back enough. Most people think a rotor is cut perfectly flat if this was true the pads would rub against the rotor all the time. The car could be jacked up and on stands and have someone listen for the noise right next to the wheel while you speed up the wheels and slow down with the brakes and don't try for 100mph you could hurt the tires

Brand new bike. when gliding only there is a humming/vibration in rear end wheel or near the pedals


This could be a result of having the gears not aligned, i.e. low front to low rear or vice versa causing some friction. Also the wheel may not be in the guide properly, perhaps askew, so a simple realignment would cure it.
Good Luck,
Joe

Rear driver wheel has light reubbing noise when car in motion goes away when brakes are engaged. Is this brakes or barrings problem? Cost of repair?


hi this sounds like your brake pads have worn, or the brake shoes as well, if you have drum brakes on the back it will be shoes, if disk brakes will be pads+shoes (inside the disk) if it was the wheel bearing you would hear a loud humming noise not rubbing noise, is it a metallic rubbing noise or a rubber squeaking rubbing noise? just check condition of tyre on back if it is the squeaking rubber noise cost will depend on where you take it and if you do it yourself, possibly $40 to $50 at a garage/auto shop or possibly $20 to $30 if you do it yourself, this just depends ...hope this helps

Rear wheel nois


How old are the bearings, milage- and age-wise? It probably won't hurt to replace 'em, anyways. There are only a few things at the rear wheel that would cause a scraping sound: wheel bearings, final drive parts rubbing on the rim or swingarm or the braking hardware. Give each of those a very good checking.

jack up the rear wheel and spin the rear wheel to find out what the rub is. look to see if there is any rubbing marks on or in the fender well.( do not have on the emergency brake) Also if the noise could be metalic then it could be the brake drum rubbing on the backing plate.
