Dr Ruth

Fellow Gliders,

I have noise as I lean into a left only turn. No noise in a right turn. Noise is more pronounced the faster I go. It's a gur, super fast tap, buzz kind of sound. Something like a feathered tire could sound like, but tires look fine. Neck bearing adjustment, wheel bearings, or maybe brakes ??
Look forward to hearing from you Dr Ruth.

"Don't like the noise"

My 12 RG started doing it at about 10,000 miles put on a new rear wheel and tire with new bearings at 15,000 and noise went away,now at 17,000 its back,only hear it when cornering at 50 and above,figure it must be the tires,using the factory Dunlops both times.

2012 RG Vivid Black,contrast Anarchy wheels,SE air cleaner,cobra tuner,Thunderheader ,diamond cut heads and clys,Fueling Reaper 574 cams,this is just a starting point.
