Okay..not sure where its rubbing...if its rubbing on the driveshaft tube, .first verify the correct size tire is mounted on the rim...
a 1982 XJ650 should have a 120/90-18 tire...the 120 is the width in mm if its a 130 or a 140 it may be too wide for the chassis design. If it is the correct size, inflated to correct pressure something else is wrong.

Smoking and burning rubber smell coming from around right rear tire


ok jack up the right rear tire look at the inside ot the tire as you slowly rotate the tire also look for any signs that something is rubbing against the tire. if you must remove the tire and check to see if the spring in the strut is broken and rubbing against the tire. I ran into this problem before and the spring in the strut was broke shifted against the tire and caused it to rub the tire causing smoke. let me know we will keep trying to find the cause

Having a noticable womp womp coming from the rear


This is not an 'ASUS Z71' question.

Got a flat tire?

Or, a tire with a flat spot?

Or, got something (nails, rocks) wedged into the tire-treads?

Got worn brake-pads that are rubbing?

Got a bad expansion-cylinder inside the brake, causing the pads to rub against an out-of-round brake-drum?
(If you drive a few miles, and then touch each wheel, is one wheel is noticeably warmer than the rest?)

Rubbing or grinding noise coming from Driver side rear tire/wheel


I had the same problem that based on interner research is common for Fords trcuks/suvs. The common problem fro rear humming "rubbing"sound might be the rear wheel bearings/seal. These will need to be replaced as it will progressivly get worse and the noise louder and eventually the bearings can sieze. I would hesitate to take to a ford dealer if I were you as it can run $500-900. Take to mechanic that knows how to replace wheel bearings and seals. My mechanic replaced them for about $150. and the bearing and seals are around $40. A good way to test this is to raise the wheel were you can freely spin by hand...if does not spin or there is a lot of friction then it might be the wheel bearings.
Good Luck
