If that doesn't do anything, I would then check your wheel bearings. There are sites out there that show you how to repack them. Good luck

1987 honda hurricane 600 front end head shake after 55mph and rolling off the throttle . air is at 6psi in each tube , front axle nut torqed to 80ft lb ,front tire 34 psi , tire is balanced .

sounds like either the tire is feathering or the head bearings are bad. if you can rub your hand over the tire tread and theres a lip on one side of the tread then its feathering. f0f1bd53-24b2-4d9d-9a03-76754a418f1a.jpg

While driving down the roadway my bike is making a rubbing or grinding noise. there is oil in the bike. sounds like its coming from front sprocket, is there a bearing i can get to to replace?

Yes you could get the roller bearing for the front wheel.
Try to remove the two bearing and clean the side of that bearing, you could see the number type of that roller bearing. Tell the number or bring the sample in the nearest parts store and surely they have that part.
Just remember when installing it back, dip/soaked that bearing to any motor oil for an hour.

Hope that helps you out.
Thanks for using FixYa!

When I take off in first gear every single time then there is a clicking sound that almost sounds like the chain is getting caught on something. It does not hold back from excelerating although the noise...

Thanks for the inquiry!
From your information I can't tell if this is a off-road bike or a street bike. With the extended swing arm I'm suspecting off-road. In either case it's very much same issues. You have two issues and we will deal with them separately.
Chain catching sound:
In low gear when you have maximum torque applied to your rear sprocket & wheel many times the primary sprocket (smallest one under the engine side cover) will slip and actually jump teeth. You indicated this is the third season, so it's seen a lot of wear. It would also explain that when you adjust/ tighten the chain tensioner the noise is gone as the front sprocket is not slipping in the chain. If this happens a couple of times the front sprocket is ruined. Pull the front sprocket cover and inspect the teeth. The teeth will be smooth and ground away if this has occurred. Most off-road riders go through 1 - 2 sprocket and chain sets per season with the abrasion form the sand and mud if they are serious about their riding. Replace front sprocket or both sprockets & chain.
Other possibilities are that you have lost your chain guide or the plastic wear plates inside the chain guide are gone and the chain is banging against the metallic sides or your swing arm making the chain jumping sound you have described. Replace the guide or wear plates to solve this.
Whooping sound on front of bike while coasting: This familiar sound appears to be related to your front wheel. The best way to test this is to set your bike on a bench, crate, or test stand so the front wheel/tire is off the floor/ground and spin the wheel. Your rim may be bent allowing the tire to rub against the fork tubes or front fender making the whooping sound. The engine noise drown's it out under power but noise is audible when coasting with the clutch in and engine idling. The simple fix is a spoke tightening and adjustment to properly true the wheel. You will hear if its a bearing or something else being rubbed against by a wooble or something out of round (run out) causing the whooping sound.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.
Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.
Happy cycling,

How much fork oil does a 96 honda shadow 600 hold?

about 300 -350cc in each fork depending how hard you want to make the fork on rebound. Normally can also be measured by using a metal ruler at 14.75-15.00 cm from stachion lip.

My front brakes are rubbing against the wheel making a noise, the fluid isnt clear and low. I dont know whether the break pads are worn. Could you please give me some advice on this please thanks Jon

take a look at the pad you should have at least 1/8in of pad. if all you see is a metal plate, then you have gone to far and need to replace the pads, the front brakes do about 70% of the breaking under normal conditions, emergency they do about 80 to 90%.

Vfr 400 nc24 whining noise when engine is reved

The loud whining noise is just normal for vfr 400 because it is gear driven cam.. As you reach 5000rpm up, the bike's electrics try to misfire the plugs so it would act as a speed limiter (180kph).. You have to bypass the sensor at the speedo..

The front brake on our 2006 Suzuki C50 seems to be rubbing the front tire in one place. It's not enough to slow the tire, but when we put it on jack and turn front wheel, we can hear it rubbing. Is

disc/rotor is warped in one spot, doesn't sound extreme...if it's buggin' you have it turned at a motorcycle shop, otherwise just ride my friend, it's not dangerous....Tim

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. ,,
