Title: Resr end ticking
Post by: shai385 on April 27, 2021, 03:27:34 AM
Need some advice, I have  a center  stand  on my  v7 iii
When  I turn the wheel  ,while  the engine  is not  running
I hear  some  noise  from  the rear end,like parts  are moving  inside, as if I turn a wheel  that  has  sprockets  and chain
I looked  at another  guzzi, and its completely  silent, no noise  at all while  turning  the wheel, when  driving  I don't  hear  any  strange noises, I guss  without  the  stand  I wouldn't  have  noticed, is it normal  noises?or a beginning  of a problem?
Thanks

You may just be hearing the the brake pads dragging on the rear disc. The pads are always just barely touching the disc ready to grab when the brake is applied. Any bike with disc brakes will have the same sound to some extent.

When the bike is on the stand, the uni is going through an unnaturally large angle.
Try taking off the shocks while on the centrestand and prop the swingarm up to the position it would be if it was laden.
You might find the noise disappears.

The ticking or clicking sound you describe is not something I hear on my V7III, so you may be right to question it.

If you just roll the bike forward, (not on the center stand), is the sound there? Do you know what a mechanics stethoscope is? They are inexpensive at an auto parts store. It might help isolate the sound to a specific spot that might aid in determining the trouble.

My III has the HB CS and does the same thing. Sounds like the shaft or U joint is hitting the housing. V700 Steve installed mine and said don't worry about it, so I haven't. It's gotten 17000 on it and is still fine.
It does make me wonder what happens when people put longer than called for rear shocks and go over a severe bump and the thing really hits.

When  I roll ithe bike down  a slope   I don't  hear  any  noises ,when the engine  is off
If anyone  who has a center  stand  can try  it I will really  appreciate

I believe he means hepco becker center stand, which is what I have on my bike as well. Like I said, I have not experienced what you are describing.

Listen over by the ujoint rubber, I think that's were the noise was on Vagrents. Maybe some stretch out farther than others, only happens on the centerstand. Nothing to worry about. You could listen on the end of a screwdriver also with tip on affected area.

Likely just a touch of movement in the splines. Take it apart, pack the splines with goo, see if it changes.
At may even be the bearings rattling a touch on the pinion rings. The best fix is to not listen to it when it is on the center stand.
