Only noticed since the new tires...


If I cruise at about 50 and throw the clutch and let the motor come down to an idle I can hear a whinning coming from the rear tire/sprocket area, do these belts normally make that noise? Or is something wrong?

well i did something stupid, i had a 200 metzer on my rear it got over 13000 miles on it, when i looked close at the tire i noticed belt was rubbing tire so i went to a local shop and he had a dunlop 180 in stock so i told him to put it on. 328 total cost 230 for the tire. bike does not handle as well. so morrel of the story i should have let him order a 180 from metzer and waited only 3 days instead of rushing in and putting a tire i realy did not want
