Front end noise 1200gs
« on: March 16, 2010, 06:13:11 am »
The bike has been doing it for awhile.
At over 80 km/h it starts.

Is it a:

Bearing
Brakepads making noise (Not new pads)

Or something else
Solo travellers should not be considered unsociable, they are expressing their independence until they choose to do otherwise.

Hi Kwassi,

You may have to be a little less cryptic with your description...

What type of sound is it?  Grinding, scraping, knocking, (moaning, screaming, panting!!?? ;D)

Seriously, though, I don't think I will be able to provide you with any answers but I think those who could may need the additional details.
I started biking as an under achiever and it went downhill from there...

No vibration.

Sorry more info

I would say more scraping or whining noise.
