Recently replaced the drive belt and installed a new rear tire on my 2003 S-wing with 24,000 miles . After another 1,500 miles I am suddenly hearing an occasional sound at times similar to the sound of a wild turkey gobble coming from the left rear wheel area. Sounds more like a rubbing than grinding sound. I removed the belt cover and checked everything I could see. Replaced the final drive oil and checked the rear tire for looseness, all to no avail.
Has anyone ever experienced anything like this and if so, how did you fix?

Someone else here recently posted a similar concern, but there was never a follow up post regarding any resolution. Check the archives. Maybe something in that thread will suggest an approach for you.

Try giving more throttle on takeoff. If that doesn't help deglaze the clutch pads. After deglazing the clutch pads use a little more throttle on takeoff and the noise should not return.

When do you hear the sound (speed, rpm, other circumstances), how long does it last, and often does it occur? How does the SWnig feel/handle during the 'noise'? Do you feel any loss of power during these events?
