Noise with a passenger
Wow!! Been riding so much I havn't had time to get back here. So much has changed, for the better.
Anyway, I have about 10,000 miles on my 07 JP, and for the most part, it has been great. I love the bike, but have noticed someting bothering me since I started having a passenger ride with me on occasion. When both of us are on and we hit a dip or go over anything that compresses the rear shock more than a little, I get what sounds like a high pitched metal to metal sound, like something is rubbing (a pulley, wheel, etc.). I have looked at the belt, belt pulley on the wheel, and the wheel itself, and they look fine. Anybody have this happen or have any ideas?
(Just realized that 10,000 miles on an 07 doesn't seem like much. Well, I actually bought it in the middle of the snow in the beginning of 08, and most people here stay off the streets from January until about April because of the cinders.)
