So after buying my fxr in Nov I finally got to really ride it yesterday, and now I have a problem. Well to start out with I think the bike is cursed. A tie down strap broke on the way home and the bike got all sorts of beat up between Syarcuse NY and my house in NH. Then I had it up at a buddy's shop this spring. After we got it all back together with a new tank etc, it got knocked over badly in the shop.
Banged up the tin again.
Anyway rode it home last night. And at first I heard a squeak from the front end when I rolled off the throttle. After 5 miles that turned into a constant squealing from the front end. Could this be an axle issue? There seems to be some vibes in the front end as well.
The bike has 14,900 miles on it, but I don't know any of the history other than a repo from NV and it has newer HD custom wheels.
