I own a 1994 1500 goldwing se, This bike runs great although, I'm hearing a clicking noise in the final drive and can't determine what the problem is. I have elimated the brakes by removing the caliber and while I had the bike apart I inspected bearings for roughness and the rear flange for ware. I greased all parts and added new gear oil. The noise is audible when the tire is on the ground or up on the center stand. I'm a new member and need HELP Thanks.

If you move wheel back and forth by hand w/Wing on center stand& in neutral, it MAY be excessive play in ring/pinion gear[had this condition onold GL1000]. If this IS the case, look around for someone sellingrear end after Trikinga Wing. They usually unloadrear partscheap; savesa lot of $.
It COULD also be a rear end bearing going, even though they look OK[ Putnew wheel bearing in both wheels back awhile, as sidecar rigs aretough on them. Cost me $79.20 total at a local bearing dealer].
If it's something else, other very knowledgeable folks here will advise, I'm sure. TTFN.....Old Tom

No expert here on this issue but common sense would be inspect drive shaft yoke/universal. I am in the auto manufacturing field and I would swap out a known good joint to try. Clicking issues are tough to find but u joints are of a rotation basis and if one rotation = one click, you are in the correct area. My 2 cents...and what is your mileage???
