What year and what model??

Yes, there is some slight play in the bearing.

Rotate the wheel with bike on center stand and see if you feel any grinding or roughness. If you are inclined, you can drain the final drive oil and check for any large bits of metal that would indicate impending bearing failure.

09 stang GT/CS conv. play in Rt.Rr wheel lugs r tight. I can move wheel and rotor in and out a lil bit. No grinding noise when wheel spins.


There may be a slight amount of end play in each rear wheel if rear wheel drive. This is normal axle end play with a solid axle. If the rear axles are CV joint type with a small differential, suspect a loose/worn wheel bearing/hub assembly

2009 FLSTC. slight vibration and wheel wobble.


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non standard equipment on the front end such asheavy radio receivers, extra lightning equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tire(s) or improper front-rear tire combination
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. Shock absorber not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing play.
9. Improper vehicle alignment.
10.Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires out of round or eccentric with hub.
13. Rims and tires out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft nut improperly tightened or assembled.
Good luck and have nice day

Grinding noise from rear wheel


could very well be a wheel bearing. Jack the car up on the wheel making the noise, grab onto the tire and try to shake it, if there is any play and or clunking noise the wheel bearing is most likely the culprit.

My Piaggio Vespa 125cc rear wheel has slight play. What could this be?


no panic - this is typical for the old 2stroke Vespas as their gearbox is on the rear axle....(needs no belt like the newer ones)
-but then there is a certain amount of play needed...

Rear wheel noise


Brakes or bearing would be my two top choices as starters.

Left rear wheel bearing


Hi

Quite easy !

Slacken your wheel nuts, Jack up the car, support on an axle stand, remove the wheel.

Knock off the little domed dust cap with a screwdriver.

Remove the split pin, and undo the nut.

The drum should now pull off if you remember to let off the hand brake !

Pull out the inner seal and the bearing race will fall out, also remove the outer bearing race.

Now you have to knock out the 2 bearing tracks from the drum hub.

Clean up the drum, carefully tap in the 2 new bearing tracks with a socket, and then grease the bearing races liberally with LM bearing grease.

Fit the bearing races to the drum, along with the new seal, and refit the drum, tighten the castle nut, then just back it off slightly, and fit new split pin, and then the dust cap.

Back on with the wheel, and give it a spin, and check for play by holding tyre, top and bottom.


Good Luck !

Let me know if you have any problems !
