newbie question: buzz when coasting?

2 posts in this topic

i recently removed and re-mounted my wheels on my XR-R and had the tires replaced in between. i'm not mechanically inclined so it's a minor accomplishment for me.

in any case, riding the bike afterwards i noticed it makes a buzzing noise from somewhere in the front half of the bike when coasting with the clutch in, kind of a "zzzzzzzz" sound. the bike has a mechanical odometer/speedometer.

i usually wear earplugs, so maybe it did this beforehand and i never noticed.

is this sound normal?

When you hear the sound pull the front brake slowly and see if it changes, if not disconnect the odometer cable at the wheel , (cable may need greased) if its still there maybe the speedo drive ears aren't in the slots. I don't have any noise except drive chain (normal) and I coast home every night from a block away.
