Check that the axle is adjusted equally on both side and then check to see if you have the belt guard installed incorrectly.

My 2001 xterra started making a weird sound between 20 and 35 mph. It sounds like there is a leak in some pressure system.


Common Car Noises and Their Likely Causes Noise More Details Likely Cause Fixing It Clicking noise while turning Starts faint, gradually becomes more noticeable until very loud Failed outer CV joint (constant velocity joint) due to torn boot (most likely) or old age Replace either the whole axle assembly (recommended) or the outer CV joint Water pump noises Difficult to diagnose because of water pump's location Noise usually caused by damage to the bearings in failed water pump Only cure is replacing it. If possible do it at the same time as a timing belt replacement to cut down on labor costs Squeak or squeal from an engine belt Loud, high-pitched squeak or squeal Belts either need adjustment or replacing If belts only squeak when damp, they probably just need adjustment. If they squeak constantly, they probably need to be replaced Exhaust heat shield noises Rattle that you hear when car is idling Damaged heat shield Replace heat shield

How to remove 2008 rear wheel fatboy


To remove a 2008 Softail rear wheel FIRST block motorcycle underneath the frame so that theweight of the motorcycle is off of the rear wheel, remove saddlebags if equipped, remove the belt guard and the debris deflector from the rear fork, inspect the wheel bearing end play and service the bearings if and as necessary, label the wheel spacers for left or right locationand orientation i.e. fork side or wheel side, remove the rear brake caliper from the caliper mount and support it using an elastic cord or such,For the FXCW/C modelsthe nut retainer will remain in the axle nut and does not need to be removed and if it is removed it must be replaced. For all but FXCW/C remove e-clip, remove the rear axle nut, and for FXCW/C remove the rear axle nut, loosen both axle adjuster screws an equal number of turns to remove tension from drive belt, with a suitable drift or other tool tap the axle towards the right side and remove it, remove the spacers and the caliper mounting bracket, move the wheel forward and slip the belt off of the sprocket, raise the motorcycle to allow enough clearance for removal of the rear wheel and pull the wheel with the belt sprocket from the rear fork.

To install a 2008 Softail rear wheel FIRST apply a light coat of wheel bearing grease to the axle, to the bearing bores and to the bore of the inner sleeve, roll the wheel into place in the rear fork and slide the drive belt over the drive sprocket, position the left bearing spacer between the wheel and the fork, from the right side carefully insert the axle (with its washer for FXCW/C models) through the right rear fork, the short spacer, the rear caliper mounting bracket, the long spacer and into the bearing bore, continue sliding the axle through the wheel hub sleeve, the left side spacer and the left rear of the fork, install the washer, the axle nut, and the retainer, verify correct axle alignment and the check belt deflection, check the wheel bearing end play after tightening the axle nut to the specified torque because excessive end play can adversely affect stability and handling and insufficient end play can cause bearing seizure, tighten the axle nut to 95-105 ft-lbs (128.8-142.5 Nm), install the belt guard and the debris deflector, install the brake caliper and pads, install the saddlebags, if equipped, pump the brake pedal to move the pistons out until they contact both brake pads, verify the piston location against pads, verify the position of the brake pads against the brake disc, rotate the wheel to check for any interference(s) or misalignment(s) and test the brakes for proper operation.

Adjust belt drive rear wheel


If the question is how to adjust the drive belt, it's actually pretty easy. With the bike in the side stand you should have about 1/4-3-/8 deflection in the middle of the drive belt pushing with 10lbs of pressure. The best thing to do is purchase a drive belt deflection tool that you can set to 10lbs. If you need to adjust the belt, you loosen the axle nut on the right side and turn the axle from the left side to loosen or tighten the belt tension (Harley uses eccentric shaped washers on both sides of the axle to make this adjustment easy). Once you made the adjustment and tightened the axle nut, double check the deflection to make sure it didn't change while tightening the axle nut. Takes about 10 minutes to check and adjust.

Why does rear drive belt make squealing noise when accelerating. I try'd ajusting belt tention ,nothing is working.


Hi anonymous, first you need to check rear wheel alignment in the swing arm either from the center of the swing arm pivot shaft to the center of the rear wheel axle bolt (most accurate method) measurement should exactly the same on both sides. Or you can use the axle adjuster marks stamped on the swing arm where the axle lives. next you need to get the rear wheel off the ground and rotate it in the direaction of forward movement and see where it tracks in the pully. If it tracks to one side and rubs against the pulley side walls then you can adjust the pulley location by adding or subtracting pully to hub spacers so it tracks in the middle or away from any wall. If it is mechanically impossible to achieve this desired outcome you may slightly adjust rear wheel to achieve desired results. If belt still squeeks you can try deglazing the inside of the pulley wall with scotch guard pad some simular mildly abrasive object and rub some dielectric grease on the side of the belt. All other remedies are less effective and only last for a day or two but you are surely welcome to try your own brew. Finally there is a question of proper belt tension, a belt to tight will squeek more than a loose one. For proper belt adjustment enjoy the video.

Don't know how adjust belt drive on vrscaw v rod can anyone help 2008 series


MOST HARLEYS IVE SEEN HAVE AN ECCENTRIC ON THE REAR DRIVE AXLE TO MAKE THIS ADJUSTMENT. IF SO, LOOSEN THE AXLE NUT AND ROTATE THE ECCENTRIC TO PROPER TENSION THEN TIGHTEN THE AXLE NUT. RECHECK TENSION AS IT MAY CHANGE DURING TIGHTENING.

Vibration/Rattling on right side during high speeds


I had a similar problem. The dealer change automatic transmission and differential, but the noise continu. After research on internet i think the problem is the front galiper who create a vibration on the disc wheel and the vibration frequence follow the front axle until interior car. Just press slowly the brake pedal and if the noise stop , that's it the cause i think. I dont change my galiper, but i have a new transmission . :)))
