What is that noise?
Hello! I purchased a 1999 V92c in late May. It was for a great price and had only 1,580 miles. The previous owner was declining in health and needed the money. He told me he would crank it up often but for health reasons he didn't ride it much. I couldn't pass it up for the price with all the extras. So i gladly paid and rode it home!
That was the best ride I ever had on it, 140 miles. I filled it up just before got home, got about a half mile from the gas station and it started to cut out on acceleration. So i sputtered the last 2 miles home. The next day i rode it around town for 10 mins with no problems, so i headed to work, got 2 miles from home and it died wouldn't restart, let it sit for 30 mins. and she started right up. So again I sputtered back home. Ended up replacing the fuel line filters, fuel lines, canister filter and having the fuel tank lined.
Got the fuel situation under control and got it tags on it. So this last weekend a couple of friends and I took our bikes on a cruise. Ended up being about 250 miles. Had a blast! But I kept hearing something the last 30 miles or so. In the last 8 miles it had a wobble after 45mph. So i took it easy and made it home.
So today I put it up on the jack and noticed metal shaving fall from the rear hub as i spun the wheel. After i took it all apart, I found that the right bearing has ate itself and the inner and outer spacer show alot of wear. All are replaceable for around $90. But the only thing is the hub appears to be damaged to. I haven't got the race out yet and i will know more when I do.
Have done some looking round for used rear wheel with minimal luck. Does anyone have any ideas, like what i could use for a substitute wheel or where to fine a replacement?
