The drive shaft on the Royal Star can make noise if both ends are not properly lubricated; tourers have found that lubricants with a high molybdenum disulfide content applied to both ends at about 15,000 mile intervals will eliminate that aggravation. A readily available lubricant, Honda Moly 60 paste (60% molybdenum disulfide by weight) has been used by Goldwing owners for years, and it works just as well on Royal Stars.

Hypoid gears in the final drive can also be noisy. Short of having the drive disassembled and replacement shims installed, changing to a good synthetic 75W-140 lubricant will quiet or eliminate the whine.

Splines and pins in the final drive and rear wheel assembly can also cause noise. Remove the rear wheel, put a thin layer of Honda Moly 60 paste on the pins, dampers and in the drive spline, ditto with the mating spline on the final drive. I relubricate all of these every time I change rear tires, probably more often than necessary, but it's convenient to do when the wheel is off.

    LATE NOTE!!!!



    I've always warned people
    away from oils that were labeled "energy conserving", but lately I've
    noticed that those same oils no longer carry that label. I've been
    seeing a new seal on the same oils; on the outside of the seal are the
    words "American Petroleum Institute" on the top, "Certified" on the
    bottom, and in the center of the seal are the words "For Gasoline
    Engines", and - surprise, surprise! - they ALL contain molybdenum
    disulfide, the stuff that makes clutches slip.

    Check the bottles of the oil that you're considering for use in your
    motorcycle. If you see the API seal, keep going. Unfortunately, a
    member named "rasolheim" is learning the hard way how expensive an
    error like that can be; I hope that I can warn others before they make
    the same mistake.

Rattle noise


i dont think the hard drive is fixable at this point.the rattle noise you hear is usually the last indicator that your hard drive is going to crash for good. I have had the same problem with a couple of hard drives. the first time I lost everything. the second time I started hearing that noise from a hard drive ,I jumped into action and copied all I could before it finally quit for good. live and learn.

Shaft drive makes noise by back wheel


Did anybody actually read his question? He was asking about a noise in his "shsft drive" motorcycle near the final gear assembly.
To me ot sounds like the backlash is out of adjustment and/or the rear wheel tooth contact needs adjusting.

I have a 2002 Royal Star Midnight Venture that I recently purchased with only 4,400 miles on it. I have put 3,000 miles on bike since I purchased in about 3 weeks time fram. I noticed in the final drive in...


Okay, possible problem is the final drive isn't quite the final drive because they transfer the power through the final drive to a inner sprocket looking affair which has rubber pumpers or pads to take up the shock. It's not metal on metal it's a rubber drive.

Hard to explain but, what you are hearing is the drive cogs working on a dry rubber bushing, same type system on the Goldwings, there was a special synthetic grease that went on mine and we were good for a ton of miles after that.

Also these rubber drive parts do crack and break apart after about 10,000 miles.

2000 Harley Davidson Superglide. When put into gear it doesn't do anything but makes a noise.


Check your final drive belt. I've seen the break and just sit there on the bike looking like nothing is wrong. With the engine off and the transmission in neutral, reach under the swingarm and grab the belt. Pull it hard.

You may also have a stripped out front final drive belt pulley. The splines have been known to wear out and then the pulley simply spins on the final drive gear.

Good Luck

2007 xvz1300 Royal Star Venture gear whine at 50-60mph is related to shaft drive pinion gears or clutch basket


Unfortunately, you can get noise from the transmission, clutch basket, drive shaft, pinion gears or rear wheel on the Royal Star. No way to tell which you have so:

Barring a failure of the clutch basket, a change to a multi-grade synthetic oil THAT DOES NOT HAVE AN ENERGY-CONSERVING SEAL ON THE BOTTLE will quiet gear and clutch noise. Energy-conserving oils tend to make a wet clutch slip. Try Shell Rotella-T (T6) synthetic, available at Walmart for about $19.00 a gallon, I've got 111,000 on a Tour Deluxe with it, and it just keeps going...

The drive shaft on the Royal Star can also make noise if both ends are not properly lubricated; tourers have found that Honda Moly 60 paste on both ends at about 15,000 mile intervals will eliminate that aggravation.

Hypoid gears in the final drive can also be noisy. Short of having the drive disassembled and replacement shims installed, changing to a good synthetic 75W-140 lubricant will quiet or eliminate the whine.

Hi I have an xvz 1300 , hasa hi pitch noise comming from g/ box at high speed Thank you greg


Unfortunately, you can get noise from the transmission, clutch basket, drive shaft, pinion gears or rear wheel on the Royal Star. No way to tell which you have so:

Barring a failure of the clutch, a change to a multi-grade synthetic oil THAT DOES NOT HAVE AN ENERGY-CONSERVING SEAL ON THE BOTTLE will quiet (but not necessarily eliminate) gear and clutch noise. Energy-conserving oils tend to make a wet clutch slip. Try Shell Rotella-T (T6) synthetic, available at Walmart for about $19.00 a gallon. Broken clutch springs and bent or warped clutch and friction plates can also be noisy, but that is typically experienced across the whole speed range; fixing a problem like that would involve replacement of the clutch assembly. The transmission gears are straight-cut for strength, and tend to be noisier than bevel-cut gears, still, if the noise remains annoying after an oil change, have the dealer or, better yet, a veteran Royal Star rider, evaluate the noise to see if it is excessive.

The drive shaft on the Royal Star can also make noise if both ends are not properly lubricated; tourers have found that Honda Moly 60 paste on both ends at about 15,000 mile intervals will eliminate that aggravation.

Final drive has noise coming from it and gear box


i have one of these,check the oil level in the final drive and the colour,replace with good quality 80-90 gear oil,if the noise doesnt go away you may find that one of the bearings in the final drive is worn,often what happens on these bikes is that because the final drive is virtually maint free people dont change the oil and the oil becomes contaminated with particles from the crownwheel,pinion,and bearings and the bearings will evetually fail,i change the final drive oil on mine every time i do the engine oil change and after125000km is still dead quiet
