There is a universal joint in the drive train that can go bad. It may require you removing the drive shaft side of the engine covers but you can access it yourself and I suspect you will see the problem.
You're not having any problems with the bike in any particular gear are you?
If you like to DIY I can send you a very good link to a website that has exploded views of your engine and the parts you may need. You can even purchase the parts from these people at a very reasonable price.
Just let me know if you need further assistance.
Regards,

After changing trear wheel on 2006 belt driven suzuki intruder 1500 when i put inn gear it makes a grrrring noise


Suzuki intruders are shaft drive only unless someone has engineered a major conversion to belt drive
when refitting the rear wheel something has gone wrong and it may be binding on something and causing the noise remove rear wheel and check for points of contact if none shaft drive ,gearbox and clutch need to be investigated

Bearing noise in rear of motor when idling and in gear 98 Suzuki 1500 intruder


Most likely it' s the clutch. Does it change when you engage and disengage the clutch? If so it is normal to hear a little bearing type noise from the clutch area when idling on wet clutch systems.

Noise


When you start the engine the clutch shaft into the gear box is spinning with the engine crankshaft. When you depress the clutch the noise stops because the input shaft is not turning. It points to a failing bearing on the clutch input shaft and if that proves to be the case then the box has to come out and be pulled down for the bearing to be replaced.

Can you adjust rear shocks on a 94 intruder 800 , when you are going through the gears.the rear end comes up, insted of siting down after shifting and getting back on the throttle


hi this may help,this si quite a common complaint on shaft drive bikes,what you are actually experiencing is the torque reaction between the drive shaft rotating on a horizontal plane and the crown wheel rotating iin a vertical plane,as you crack the throttle open the back of the bike wants to stand up and off the throttle the back end will squat down,some of the earlier bmws were like riding a pogo stick,they were very bad for it,stiffening up the suspension may help a little,but it will still be there,unfortunatley it is a problem that is common on all shaft drive bikes(my gl1200 and gl1500 goldwings both do it so you are not alone...hope this helps

Transmission noise


if the belt is too tight &/ or misaligned, it can make nasty squelching noises!?? I found that the cush-drive hub runs on only a single bearing, off-centred to the belts pull, which could not maintain radial/ alignment stiffness, this made all the square teeth on the belt wear to a taper, i eventually had a secondary 'outrigger' needle-roller bearing mounted on the far inside end of the cush-drive hub [this took a little specialised machining] and the new belt since, now wears true!
