I'm stump I bought this bike a week ago and it had a whine on decel so I did my research and replaced the front bearing. The old bearing was not bad and had minimal to no play. Fresh fluid everywhere front to back. Is the whine on decel normal on these bikes? 18k miles thanks in advance

"The Whine" is something that comes up on every forum now and then. Even on my bike people complain about it tho honestly in 131,xxx miles I've never heard it. I guess sometimes the answer is the old dealer standby, "it's normal".

Thanks for the reply, I just dont want the back wheel to lock up or something on me. It's only auditable for 40 and down. The bike also now has decided to give me a jumping idle and misfire with flickering lights. I have checked for leaks and such it on everywhere.

Sounds like a ground problem.

First thing I would check is the Battery's voltage before you do anything else, Then make sure it's fully charged then test the charge rate at idle and around 4k with the lights on.
