1996 RSTC Deceleration Noise

I have a 96 Royal Star Tour Classic i bought about 6months ago and it has developed a new noise. It sounds like a tire or belt rubbing, but only when I coast or decelerate i in gear with the clutch out. i have read the vast array of threads about "chirping" and "whining" because of the gears and clutch basket, but all these mention the noise in acceleration and not deceleration. i don't have that problem, on when coasting or slowing down. I would greatly appreicate any help or advice.

Thanks,
Sam

p.s. i should note that I have already changed the oil, and the final drive hypoid oil, both with no change to the noise.

I would look into the possibility of dry teeth on the final drive splines.You're reversing the torque (running against the opposite side of the teeth) on deceleration and Yamaha is stingy with their grease. Also if you aren't already fimiliar with it, try this forum site; www.venturerider.org there is an enormous amount of experience and talent that frequents that site.

You must be certain of the origin of the noise you hear. Is it toward the rear of the bike or is it more underneath you? From your description it sounds like typical clutch basket (driven) and primary drive gear to me. This was most common during constant speed at light load and deceleration mostly. Mechanically you have nothing to worry about as this noise will not cause any filures or problems. If the noise is loud enough it can certainly try your patience and distract from your riding enjoyment. You might try calling their headquarters directly in Cypress, Ca. and ask to speak with Customer Service to see if they have any updates for that particular noise.

big sam I think it mite be your rear brake pads .mine does this too.I replaced rear pads,after reading some where on line I discovered lots of folks having this problem.when you get the new pads in place and pins back in,loosen the bolt that holds your caliper assemble on to the swing arm.Pump the rear brake peddle till the pressure comes up and tighten that bolt back while holding the brake peddle tight.the caliper tends to loosen a bit and get out of line.this will bring it back straight with the rotor.
