When on center stand does not make noise. It only makes the noise under load. Goes through the gears very smooth. But when under driving load it sounds like a bearing noise. Has anybody had the same problem. It is even hard to hear the engine running when moving.

Are you sure it's the rear wheel? Speedo Gear?

If not the speedo cable and/or gear then Are your tires worn and cupped? E3s will make lots of noise and feel like a bad bearing.
