Question about 2002 Yamaha V Star 1100 Custom
My bike just started making a whoop, whoop, whoop sound from the rear wheel or the final drive assembly. It makes this sound under power or coasting and is in time with tire rotation. What is a possible cause and is it safe to drive?
If its a constant wining sound a bearing or cog is worn and needs sorting b4 it fails

SOURCE: Clicking noise from rear wheel
Is your bike chain drive? It sound like you have a link in the chain hanging up. Check it and lube it.

Pull the rear axle, and spacer on the brake side of wheel. Un hook brake rod and brake strut. Position yourself on the brake side of the bike and pull the rear wheel straight out of the final drive housing. Put a little grease on thhe final drive splines upon reinstalling the wheel to aid removal next time.

You should not have to unbolt the final drive assembly. Loosen the rear axle nut, take out the bolt, knock out the spacer , lift the caliper assembly out of the way and hang it by a wire, grab the wheel, and slide it sideways away from the final drive. The wheel should slide right off the spline of the final drive and roll out the back under the fender. If the wheel wont slide past the final drive let the air out of the tire. Be sure to coat the spline of the final drive with moly60 paste available at your local Honda dealer when reassembling.
