Yesterday I noticed a humming noise while in curves. Think it may be wheel bearings? :surprise: Front bearings are new, so would indicate rear bearings going I guess
Are wheel bearings an issue on these bikes? I notice something similar on my new-to-me 2010. Slight noise and teensy bit of feel in the handlebars. It has 15,000 miles on it but was completely gone through by a dealership so I just figured I leaned further in turns than the previous Owner?Yesterday I noticed a humming noise while in curves.

I'm hearing the same thing and seeing visible signs of cupping on the front starting at about 10k. Pressures are checked and maintained regularly. Makes me wonder about dunlops QC. I'm at 11k now and I can start to feel the cupping on the corners. Probably have to have my parts gal (my wife, lol) order me up a metzler 888 here in a couple weeks.Tires are cupped - mine started doing it around 8k miles

I've been told that changing the bearings when you swap tires is the best choice.Guess it's just the shitty Dunflop then. I plan to change the bearings when I get a new tire anyway. But that will be after the Cali trip then. I just was concerned about if the bearings were going bad prior to making the trip out west.
That has got to be the most bizarre thing I've even heard. I do high lean angle hijinks at everything from parking lot figure 8 speeds to 100mph+ ... And I haven't seen a wheel bearing fail yet. I've warn the entire rim off the Gremlin Bell the dealer gave me frolicking about in corners, and took the paint off the back corner of the left saddle bag at 70 mph one day when I hit a bump in a turn.I've been told that changing the bearings when you swap tires is the best choice.
