When I go around right hand turns there is a squealling sound coming from the wheel. Why ? I doesn't do it when turning left. Is that a sign of the rear wheel bearings going bad ? Thanks

If you have a chrome driveshaft cover, make sure the little zip tie isnt rubbing.


On a side note....How was trout season on Piney creek and Castleman???

How fast are you when it makes the noise? The tire can make a nice squeal noise when you go around turns. When my front wheel bearings were going bad, they made a pulsating whirrr...whirrr....whirrr type noise and this was while going straight. No squealing

I've only noticed it when under 45mph. I was thinking I didn't hear it when going faster because wind sound drowned it out.

My "flange bearing" caused my rear wheel to squeal under certain conditions (like turning). This is a documented design flaw that you should have checked.

Take a look and see if your rear tire is cupping, the cupping on the rear will squeel on hot pavement. :wink:

I've had a 200 Axe do it on mine, sounds like a squeeky fanbelt on a cage. :wink:

make sure your right floorboards are tight and all those bolts underneath there.
