XVS90 - Knocking behind Sprocket cover

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

I own an XVS 950 and it has a worrying knocking sound coming from behind the sprocket cover when you push the bike forward?  It doesn't seem to do it when riding (or at least I cant hear it)...just when pushing the bike?

Any Ideas?

The drive belt is VERY tight....is this normal?  There is very little to no play in the belt when the bike is stood...

Process of elimination. Has the bike a centre stand? If yes, get it on the stand, remove the sprocket (pulley) cover, spin the rear wheel, see if the knock appears at the same point every rotation of the sprocket or belt. May be some crap stuck on the belt or sprocket, or it may be the belt is damaged and ready for replacememnt. Check to make sure that the sprocket (pulley) is secure on the shaft
