  • Front rim noise

    Check out the vid. Rim seams to have a knocking noise when I shimmy the rim forward and back. Not side to side.
    wheel bearing’s possibly?

    Do you feel any movement front to back or just hear the noise?

      Any side to side noise?….
      if noise is only front to back… that kind of points to the steering head bearings or worn bushing in the fork tubes… side to side noise/ movement points to wheel bearings…
      further troubleshooting is most definitely warranted…!!

        Can you push the handlebars forward and back to produce the same noise?

          some of the older R*'s had an issue with the outer bearing race spinning inside of the rim. From what I understand from a member that it happened to the surface area of the rim wears down and the whole bearing slips and spins and is no longer a pressed in fit to the rim. I'm not for sure that is what your noise is but it is just something to think about.

            I've listened to your video a few times and wonder if the weight inside the pie pan is loose?

              Lots to take in.
              I’ll keep posting. Bike going up on stands this week and will get a head to toe inspection on everything.
              Appreciate the feed back. Don’t know much about this stuff.

                Oh ya. To answer Roadiemort. Ya, there is about 1/4” play when I spin the tire on the axle. That’s the knock you hear

                No movement front to back or side to side. Just when I grab the wheel at 3 o’clock & 9 o’clock and spin it there is a 1/4” gap in play and that’s the sound you hear when I rock it back & forth between the gab.
                Just going to play it safe and swap the bearings and inspect the collar and inner rim. Bike is 18 years old and nothing on it has ever been changed or lubed
