Hey everyone,

I've got a 650 custom with 43k km (27k miles), and it hasn't given me an ounce of trouble.

just recently I've noticed a creaking\groaning sound coming from the area where the drive shaft connects to the wheel. This is nothing motor related, as I can only hear the noise when I am moving very slowy, and the engine actually has to be off for me to hear the noise. My drive shaft fluid is completely topped up, and I just can't see where the noise is preciecly coming from, any ideas?

You need to grease the driveshaft.
