Help!!!

So I have a 2009 V star 950 Vance n Hines slash cut slip on exhaust. My issue... Idk. First bike. Not a mechanic. Brought it to a shop today for new tires and oil change. Bled the brake lines. Etc... I have a howl also clanking and grinding type noises coming from what seems the front end. I can also feel it in my left foot pad. It doesn't do it in any gear in specific. Just when I'm moving in general. It's fine on an idol in neutral. But once moving it makes a racket. Especially when engaging the clutch to slow down and down shift. Does output shaft bearing seem like a possibility. I love this bike and everything is mint on it except this recent issue. Bike only has 8700 miles on it. I'd love to fix it and continue to ride.

you have to get it up in the air and spin the tires.make sure the wheels were installed correctly.could be brakes or drive belt and pullys, on second thought take it back to the shop

It was making the noise before the tires were installed. He did say the belt was really really right so he loosened it to where it should be. I thought maybe wheel bearing but they didn't notice anything on installing tires. But it makes a racket when driving and I certainly hope it's not what they "suspect" it to be. The output shaft bearing. It has all the power, shifts through all gears with no problem. Just makes a cranky racket when moving. Not gear or speed specific.

Check the rear pulley. My stryker did the same and the rear pulley was loose and 2 bolts broke off. It sounded like the front was making the noise but it was in the back after close attention. Check your oil too for engine and brake. As nick57 said lift it and turn the wheels. There is a possibility that they did not tighten your wheels correctly. Lets us know what you find out dont leave us hanging.

It was making the racket before they did the tires yesterday. So that's what concerns me. I'm really hoping this isn't too expensive when I bring it to the shop. The local guys here at Reynolds in Maine weren't too helpful.
