I have an 883 converted to a 1200, 14K on the odometer, fluids changed with OEM about 2 months ago. I recently have been hearing a "rubbing" sound at low speeds and even when just pushing it. I drive 12mi. to and from work, mostly highway, and it seems to occur only after the engine is warm. The noise is rythmic and similar to wet rubber rubbing on something, almost the squeak of an old spring bed during "adult" activities. I thought that it was the front tire rubbing on the fender but, the tire is revolving faster than the rythm and there are no worn/clean marks on the tire. In neutral, going down a hill, I think that the noise is coming from the clutch side of the bike near where the factory pegs would be but I'm not certain. As to the loudness, I cant hear it over the wind at 30mph with the engine off. May be something, maybe not, but I lost about 1-2oz of replacement transmission fluid when refilling it. Is that little of fluid loss creating an issue? Any ideas of what I should be checking and more importantly, is this going to leave me stranded or vaulting off of the thing?
