Rear wheel gremlin....

Question.....
While the Grey Goose is on her center stand warming up, engine at idle, in neutral, the rear wheel starts to rotate.....
Clutch on the way out?

Re: Rear wheel gremlin....

No, all bikes will do that, put your foot on the rear tire and it will stop with no pull. Why they do that I have not idea, engine vibration is my guess.

Re: Rear wheel gremlin....

My 06 LT always does the same thing. When it gets warmed up it rotates slower. After riding awhile and stopping (fuel stop) and restarting on centerstand...no rotation.

Why? Beats the Beemer out of me. Enjoy your Florida weather. 35 plus inches of snow here at the HEMAN Clubhouse!

Re: Rear wheel gremlin....

The rear wheel rotation is caused by the viscosity of the transmission gear oil. While the drive splines are not engaged with the transmission in neutral, a small amount of force is transmitted to the drive line because the space between the gears and drive splines is so small and all the gears turn the same direction. All manual transmissions will do this. For what it's worth, your gears are always meshed together and the splines select which gear engages the output shaft. Five gears are all attached to the input shaft and five gears float on the output shaft until the shift mechanism engages them one at a time. A five speed transmission has five input shaft gears meshed with five output shaft gears. On a manual transmission the grinding you hear if you miss a gear is actually the spline teeth grinding against the internal spline on the gear.

Re: Rear wheel gremlin....

EXACTLY what Dean said. I had a 1983 Honda Shadow 500 that was shaft driven and did exactly the same thing until warm if it was on the center stand. Even my 1985 Kawasaki Z1000P police bike did the same thing if I put it on the centerstand and started it when cold. And that bike was chain driven! Since the '88 Harley only had a side stand, I never found out if it did it.
