Taking Junker back to a Dealer

Hi all. My 15 Street 750 now has just over 12k Miles. Cleaning it up today after a 32 Mile ride. Had it up on my hydraulic jack. Spun the rear wheel. Hear a Loud Metallic Squeaking sound. Emanating from the Belt area of the rear pulley. I've heard that sound before. Usually after sitting for a few days. Now its constant. I have a recording on my cell phone. Wish I could play for everyone.

Bummer. Your bike really has not been treating you well as of late. I'm on track to have about that number of miles on mine by this time next year. I'm really hoping your experience is atypical.

What a wicked sound. Can only be stopped with 5 gallons of cooking oil. ):

I played the video for the Tech. He couldn't duplicate it. And ended up getting charged $56 with Tax for 1/2 Hour Labor.


Maybe it would be cheaper for me to just run this POS into the ground. Wait until the wheel falls off and call them.

that's a miserable sound.

you should start tracking if it happens hot/cold, before/after, long/short ride,

and then you have the specific conditions to recreate the sound for them. but i can't believe the NPF'ed it with that video!!

make sure one of your friends has the video & receipts, in case the rear tire locks up & you die, then at least they can sue HD and be rich!

When it made that sound, It was After a 35 Mile Ride. At mostly 75-80 MPH. When I got home, It sat for an hour at most. I was letting it cool down so I can clean it. I usually clean the wheels with a bucket of water and a brush. Even clean the rotors. I cleaned the front first. When I went to wash the rear, That's when I heard it.
