'Thud' sound when moving rear wheel

I have a 954 and when moving the bike either forward or backward there is a constant 'thud sound' when the rear wheel is moved either forward or backward. It seems to be coming from the front sprocket but I am not entirely sure. There are no obvious places where anything is touching the rear wheel or brake disc. Does anyone else get this sound or has anyone else managed to get rid of it? Thanks

Sam

Re: 'Thud' sound when moving rear wheel

Do you have a rear stand? If so, put the bike up and spin the rear wheel and see if you can pinpoint where the noise is coming from. Have you removed the rear wheel recently?

Check your chain. It could be stretched and rolling on top of the sprockets or rear wheel could be missaligned and side loading the chain.

Its the chain dragging slightly on the plastic guard that is on the top of the swingarm. No problem.

Or, it could be a wheel bearing gone bad.

Re: 'Thud' sound when moving rear wheel

Txs for the messages, The sound isnt rotational ie. it comes on about 3-4 times when I move the rear wheel but there is no constant 'phase' between the sound. I am going to take the caliper off, the all the plastic gubbins to see if it makes a difference. sam
