1986 GW 1200 - Noise coming from rear wheel

Postby biker369 » Tue Sep 08, 2009 5:50 pm

As I ride I hear a clunk, clunk that seems to becoming from the area of the rear wheel. I was wondering if it's a universal, the rear drive component or brake. Bike only has 32K miles on it.
Any information or suggestions would be helpful. Thanks

It could be any of those things. Does it happen when you accelerate or decelerate? Or when you are riding at a constant speed? We'll need a bit more information. Can you feel it, or just hear it? Does it happen at low speed and high speed? Anything you can provide will help.
