I have an 86 1200I with a 3 piece rear fender. The wiring harness for the rear bumper came lose from the clips and was rubbing on the left side of the rear tire. The rear section of the rear 3 piece fender had worked itself lose from the clamps. That would rub whenever we were 2 up. So, I had 2 different noises to figure out.

Hope this may help you out.
