  5. starter motor idle gear gasket

    Dominator / FMX

  9. Side stand rubbing swingarm (Canadian XRV 650 Project)

  10. Squeaking / Rubbing noise ??

    '57 650v AT - 500'ish miles.. getting a squeak when moving slowly through traffic. Anything more than walking speed is ok, just annoying on a new bike. To me it sounds like something is rubbing; either caliper or disc any ideas or is it just the pads bedding in? :confused:
