Question about 2003 Harley Davidson FLSTCI Heritage Classic
Today I had my bike on the centerstand in order to lube the chain. When I finished, I spun the rear wheel around a few times and could hear a sort of metallic scraping sound. At first I thought it was the brakes dragging, but the noise seems to be coming from the side of the wheel opposite from the brake rotor. I gave the wheel a shake and there isnt any play. And you cant really notice the noise when pushing the bike around. Im stumped. My only guess is maybe the wheel bearing? Any ideas?
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.
