Hello hello!:ciao: I have a question, doing around maybe 20-50 mph I can hear kind of an odd sound from my front wheel. I don't know how to describe it exactly, maybe kind of a whine? Pronounced at above 4k or so I believe. Any ideas on what that might be or does anyone else notice a sound like that on their bike? I looked at the pads and I don't think they're rubbing against the rotor or anything like that. I was trying to think of what other moving parts are up there and couldn't come up with much more.. any help?

You mean with the front on a stand or something it would be hard to turn?

No that's the other weird thing. It's an 04 with 8k miles, was almost completely stock when I got it except for a couple cosmetic things, the guy I bought from barely rode it and was the 2nd owner. It was in good shape so definitely don't think it was ridden hard or anything like that. I've had bikes with a lot more miles than that with no bearing issues, a couple of which I know had never been replaced.

You said its more pronounced at about 4k rpms, it my not be your wheel because your engine speed should have no affect on a noise your tire is making, are you sure it's not a noise from your engine that is just bouncing around by your radiator and that area to just make it sound like its your tire??

Hmm, I'm not sure I heard it for the first time yesterday, usually I ride with music. I may be wrong about the rpms. I'll have to take it out again to make sure. Definitely did not sound like an engine noise or like it was coming from the engine though

Do the floating rotors make any sound? I have a not so much whining noise but something from the front end, chalked it up to normal. bearings are tight and spin freeely.

Clean your calliper pistons before you replace the bearings... if they are putting a little extra pressure on the disc they can set up an oscillation and cause the brake disc to whine.
