Grinding/Groaning noise heard.

I have a 2017 FLTRXS there are at times when slowing down and coming to a stop there is a grinding noise heard, it sounds like it is coming from the front of the engine down . It is very infrequent the bike has 13000 mile on it.

Does it happen with the clutch lever pulled in or when engine braking?

If when engine braking, what gear does it happen in?

Does it change with engaging the brakes harder or softer?

Check your brake pads. It's not unheard of to have them worn out with 13k miles.

also check your wheel bearings , tho' they would usually have other signs as well , mine sounded like rocks hitting the fender as well as the groaning ..
