I was riding this weekend and noticed that when leaning into turns 50 -60 MPH the bike made a noise that i hadn't heard before, it was like a roar and happened on both left and right turns. Is this common 2008 wing. :?:

Do your tires have different tread out towards the edges? Roaring could be simply tire tread on the road. Unlike a car, wheel bearings in a bike are not subject to much lateral stress in turns, so bearing problems don't usually manifest themselves in turns like they do in a car.

Thanks,

I'm using Dunlap E-3's and thought it might just be road noise. I had a passenger and more weight in the trunk and side bags to boot.

I would be surprised that there have four bearings that is defective, were four large bearings very solid, I have 35,000 pounds on my GoldWing, they are excellent.

my GoldWing 2003 makes the same sound as your GoldWing, I also have Elite 3 and between 50 and 70 pounds front wheel bearing failed as a scold.

Did a test, raise the front wheel with a jack under the pan of the engine is turned your wheel, you'll hear the rubbing of your front brake if you heard growling you have a faulty bearing.

But it would surprise me. Ok !1

How do you get that much weight on a goldwing? :o or did you mean miles and it's just a typo? :lol:

It is a mistake on my part, is 35,000 km, like I'm missing much English, I write with translation software.
Thank you for reminding me my mistake. :lol:
