Hi guys
I'm a new owner of my fist Goldwing 1500 from 88.
Today i had it on the center stand to do maintenance.
I then turn the back wheel just to se if there was anything wrong.

I then got the creaking sound. Sound like dry bushings, rubber against metal or something like that.
Any idea? I'm going to change the oil tomorrow. Video

That does sound bad. Could be the brake or the splines in the wheel or driveshaft dry or the final drive itself.

Take it apart, clean, inspect, and lube. Dry splines full of rust dust? Rubber buffers rubbing?
Has it been sitting or have you been riding it?

Welcome to this wonderful forum from another Dane.
I would disassemble the rear wheel, final drive and propeller shaft and do a complete service on these parts. Unfortunately, this is often something that is forgotten.

I disassembled and serviced mine as suggested above. You can do it with the bike on the centerstand. I always deflate the front tire, it gives the rear tire more clearance and makes it seem more stable. A service manual is a real good idea, when you reassemble you'll need to torque certain bolts correctly and in the right order.
