My scooter now has close to 30,000 and is an 08. I don't remember if over the years the noise was there and I just recently started to notice it more or what, but when pushing or rolling backwards there is a rubbing noise coming from the belt area.
It still runs great but even my son noticed the difference, so something is not right.

Put it on the center stand, assume the position(i.e. lay down next to it), then roll the wheel backwards. See if you can hear the noise and possibly identify the origin.

There is really nothing in the final drive gear box that would contribute to a noise, but there is always the possibility of the right side swingarm wheel bearing going bad, or possibly something awry in the clutch assembly --either of which shouldn't be all that difficult to fix. HTH

Thanks Tim.
Oddly enough I just came form chekcing my tire poressure and did exactelly that.
I noticed the noise was the same going forward and reverse.
I suspect you are also correct, in that the bearing might be going bad.
Hope it holds out for my ride today. I invited two new riders to ride with us and one has that new BMW scooter 650cc. $$$$$$. I want to race him and bring him down a notch. :lol!:

Carpe' Deium John, Any time a Silverwing takes the opportunity to smoke a Harley it's a Coup'. In the case of an uppity Beemer it's a Major Coup'.

Even with a J Costa or 21 gram sliders, you aren't going to take his BMW. But have fun trying.

Well my baby is in the hospital yet again for noise while backing up.
Not two thousand miles ago they replaced a rear bearing and I had asked them to replace others while there.
This time it was a crack in the clutch housing and another bearing.
How this happened, I have no idea but ridding like I do probably does not help.
One more reason for me to buy the Honda St 1300 I guess.
Good thing it was taken in before my big ride comming up in two weeks.
Good things happen to good people.  bounce

Most of the time service men don't have a clue .They probably have one decent mechanic that is over whelm with all the work load and the shop hires 1/2 a dozen flunkeys to do the work for  minimum wages .they are the one's that do most of the work.You don't know that because your not allowed in the service bay.Buy a service manual and do your own wrenching you will be farther a head. If you continue to have problems ,Jack up the paint and replace it with the ST.I would look for a reputable service shop in the future. motorcycle

Mine did the same and I had to have the final drive shaft and outer bearing changed. The above statement about the Honda mechanics is correct, they had no idea what it was. I had a little shop do mine and all is fine. I did get the parts myself.

Some years a certified mechanic will spend 6 weeks in class for updating and certification .They must pass a test after each class.A shop needs 2 certified guys to get $80 an hour because 1 will only get the shop $50.Thats Goldwing and other makes.

Not a good idea to ride when you know a bearing is bad.Could lead to bad things like damaged bike or self inflicted wounds.

Location ,location ,location, the only certified you will find around hear will be 500 miles away other then auto mechanics and they are qualified for safety checks.All small engine mechanics are scooped up by the local mines and train as mechanical dr to repair mining drills .But times are changing , there are schools that give the coarse but they are not staying around here. I know a few that left to work in the casinos in the south,the pay is better.
