I have a moto guzzi sport 1100 1996.No oil leaks from rear wheel when standing but spots of oil on wheel and tyre after riding a few miles.Any help would be appreciated


oil leaks during use indicate a loose bearing adjustment allowing the oil to move past the seal lip when rotating
I would be checking wheel bearing condition and adjustment, oil level in that section and wear groove for where the oil seal lip runs
reasoning is , when the wheel is stationary the oil is not being splashed around and will settle in the lowest places
when moving , if the seal housing is allowed to move separate to the axle position ( wobble , up down sideways etc) then small gaps appear between the seal lip and what it runs on and so oil is allowed to escape
if it is a drive shaft to the rear wheel check the output shaft to the wheel for movement ( bad bearings , adjustment/ preload ) or anything that will not keep the shaft in the center of the seal

Loose swinging arm


Lay the bike on its side. Superglue the bush to the swing arm. Lay the bike over the other way and repeat. Do not glue the bush to the shaft.

It sounds like you have a broken or worn swing arm bearing. There are two bearings , on on each side of the swing arm. If the one on the shaft side has gone bad it would cause the shaft to twist or move the result being the rubber dirt boot getting rubbed. To check, unbolt the lower shock bolts , remove the rear wheel , grab the swing arm , and move it from side to side to see which side has the worn/broken bearing.

R1100s 2000 65000miles After a 30min or more run upon stopping a clicking noise comes from the rear of the bike as the suspension moves. This has gone the next morning when the bike is cold.


Possibilities include:

-worn shock bushings
-worn/faulty bearings at final drive pivot point

If you have a center stand for your bike, you can do some diagnostic work yourself with the bike on the ctr. stand.

Try moving the wheel while holding it at 12 and 6 and 9 and 3 O'clock positions. Listen/feel for clicking. This would indicate a loose or defective final drive pivot bearings.

Lift the wheel from the 12 o'clock position and see if the click noise comes from the shock bushings.

Very hard to diagnose without a center stand or service stand.

Good Luck

Bad crank bearings can move crank arms small amount.


That would depend on the style of bearings (loose ball or caged balls vs sealed bearings) and possible bottom bracket damage.

Either way, a Bike Shop mechanic would probably need to assess it for you. Special tools are usually involved.

1997 BMW R1100R - front tyre scuffing rhs. This is on a bike I may buy. The tyre is well worn and will need to be replaced. I am concerned that the suspension may be out of alignment . What should I have...


The tyre could be worn like that simply because the previous owner liked right hand corners more than left or his common journey had more right hand bends.

But it could be a sign of something more serious.

It could be that the frame is bent at the steering head.(Or the swing arm is bent or swing arm bearings/bushes worn out)

A wheel alignment test should verify this.

It could also be a front suspension fault i.e. un-even adjustment of suspension settings (if it is adjustable) or incorrect fluid levels in the forks, or a bent fork tube
.
To check the steering head raise the front wheel up off the ground, grab the forks and pull back and forth. If you can feel movement then they are not adjusted properly.
Now turn the steering from side to side. The movement should be smooth and not notchy.
If any of these symptoms are apparent then the steering head bearings need adjusting/replacing.

To check the the swing arm bearings/bushes raise the rear wheel off the ground.
Grab the rear wheel and try to move it from side to side.
If there is movement the bearings/bushes are worn out.

To check the wheel alignment,place the bike on a level flat surface,loop a long piece of (thin) string around the back tyre(at about the 5 or six o'clock position viewed from the left).
so you have two pieces of equal length, long enough to reach past the front wheel.

Now pull the strings to the front of the bike.

Now position the front wheel straight ahead.

Now kneeling(or sitting on the floor at the front of the bike), place a string in each hand.

Now looking to the back wheel move the strings together until the string just touches the front edge of the rear tyre on each side.

Now holding that position, check the distance between the string and the edges of the front tyre to see they are equal.
If the gap is not even the bike has a twist,bend,missalignment somewhere.

If this seems a bit difficult you could try taking it to your local dealer where they can check it for you.

An experienced mechanic can perform these checks pretty quickly.

It usually takes me about half an hour maximum.

I hope that you find this information helpful

I have a pougeot 206 gti and it is knocking at rear on bumpy roads also found it to snake around fast bends, seams to be play on rear wheel


It could be wheel bearings, jack the rear wheel up and grab the top and bottom, wobble it, and if it wobbles alot, then the bearing has gone, or you may just need to grease them up.
It could also be susoension bushes( rubber or nylon inserts on the bolt points ) again, jack the rear up and look at the bolts that hold the suspension on and wobble the components to check if they move too easily( you will always have a small amount of freeplay ) REMEMBER TO USE AXLE STANDS AND CHOCK THE FRONT WHEELS WHEN WORKING UNDER A CAR, EVEN WHEN ON AXLE STANDS you don't want a tonne of steel pinning you down.

Why do rear fork bearings on harley davidson 2006 1200 xl custom sportster need to be replaced after 30,000 miles?


that is odd, but do a simple test, with the rear end up, check for any side to side play, for a more accurate test remove the shocks. there should be very little or no play (0.00" to 1/16") side to side.all is fine then, assuming you are asking about the swing arm bearings. well greased wheel axle bearings can last for 60k or more
