It sounds like you have a stripped spline collar on your rear wheel. The spline collar bolts on to the center of the rear wheel and slides over the spline shaft coming out of the final drive. If it is stripped the final drive will spin but the wheel wont.
You can also get a grinding sound if the u-joint in the final drive shaft has a bad bearing. The shaft and u-joint are only sold as an assembly and would probably have to be purchased used from a salvage operation.

What can cause an axle to break on the passenger side on a 2009 Honda accord?


They can break, but they give plenty of warning signs before they do. Clicking or knocking when making a slow turn, Vibrations going down the road. The rubber boots on each end will sling grease, before they break. If by chance the shaft broke, it was a defective part.

Turn the key and push the bottom and it makes a whizing sound and then a grinding nose


Does it sound like a shredded pinion gear on the starter? That would be my first guess and a place to start looking.

Honda Valkyrie Interstate 1999: 25000 miles Cobra 6x6 exhaust: Bike runs rough when idling, missfires & looses power after extended idling (in slow traffic). It's ok on open road. Carbs were cleaned...


I just went through this over the last 2 months with my 97' Standard. I tore down the carbs, cleaned, replaced all O-rings, Vac tubes and rejetted with new Factory Pro jets. Did not solve the problem. I finally determined it was the gas. I must have gotten a bad tank of the stuff. As soon as I swithed over to a name brand, Cheveron, Texaco, Exxon, etc. the problem was solved. Give that a shot before you start tearing things apart like I did.

The clutch assembly seems to be at fault. Either its worn-out or has to be readjusted(reset). This noise indicates improper transmission of power from the machine to the wheels and since this has automatic gears, it should rectified at the earliest...sodeep
