I have a 06 900 classic and have devleped a rubbing type noise which I found was coming from my front sprocket area. The dealer said it sounded like the bearings in the shaft seemed to be going out.

Has anyone had this happen, and if so what did you do about it.

Thanks,

I have read on 900 forums that a few people have had problems with the front sprocket coming loose. It usually becomes evident by a clicking sound at lower speeds. It doesn't have to be very loose to start clicking and if it gets looser it will rub on the cover like you say yours is doing. Fortunately it's an easy fix to remove a few parts to get at it and to retorque the bolt to the proper spec. Others on here could probably give you the step by step.
