I have a GL1100 with 46k miles. I just noticed when moving the bike there is a noise from the rear wheel. I put it on the center stand and the noise was the same, sounds sort of like stepping on a squeaky floor, not a brake squeak. I removed the brake caliper and the noise persisted. The oil is fresh and full. The wheel does not move side to side. The noise is not constant but is consistent in two parts on each rotation of the wheel, but does change slightly when spining the wheel forward vs spinning reverse. Thanks for the help.

On the output side of the drive is a set of splines. On the rear wheel is a matching set of splines that match to the ones on the drive. That is how the power actually transfers to the wheel. Those splines need to be lubed with Honda 60 Moly paste. I bet that is where the noise is....

Mine makes odd little noises like that too which can only be heard when on the center stand rotating the wheel slowly.
I thought it was lack of grease but it still does it.
It's almost like the final drive isnt exactly true with the wheel.
Best I can figure the noise has something to do with the pins that engage the wheel. Maybe one of those pins are not exactly straight?
Whatever is causing the noise it seems to be at the same spot in rotation.

I agree though, grease yours well and check it all for wear.
Also check the bearing while it's apart.

I hada groaning noise coming from my rear wheel last year.

I found that the problem was the damper pins in the rear hub were dry. - Greased them and have not had a problem since. From your description, it sounds like you may have a similar issue.
