loud droning noise over the exhaust?

Post by mikey s » Wed Oct 17, 2018 7:04 am

Hi all,

The frp has developed a loud droning noise that is louder than the exhaust that gets louder the faster I go.

Think it may be the rear wheel bearings?

Any other suggestions what this might be?

Are the bearings / hub difficult or expensive to change?

Thanks

When your stationery and rev does the noise still happen? Maybe a blowing exhaust?

At times it’s louder than the exhaust and seems to increase with speed which makes me think either the rear wheel bearings or dodgy tyres. The tyres are fairly new and haven’t seen much mileage either so thinking the bearings.

Would anyone know how difficult it would be to replace the wheel bearings on the frp, where to resource the parts from and price?

Thanks

Are the brake discs corroded?
