    Before we get too far down the 'possible bearings failure' road, and since you have given us very little information to go by... I want to suggest the 'lowest hanging fruit' approach - the quickest/fastest thing that you could do right now is to change your final-drive's gear oil and then re-check for the scrubbing/scraping noise... because (knowing nothing else about your bike's status), you might find that nothing or very little comes out when you pull the drain plug if this important maintenance item has been overlooked/forgotten over the life of this bike. If you've recently changed it, or otherwise know that it is 'full and fresh', then simply disregard this post - but if you have no idea the final-drive's gear oil status, then I would definitely check this first!

    you can just replace the bearings... or the flange assembly...

    remove the rear wheel... and rotate the flange bearings with your fingers..... easy.

    there is a link to download a service manual around here "FREE".... a great value..
    I have the Honda paper manual.. ordered it when I ordered the bike in 2005... ( NEW )..
    Thanks for the info so it's not to bad of a job

    It's just my opinion but I wouldn't put a torch on aluminum.

    I appreciate your 2c. But, that is a low temp torch and I used it very lightly to slowly warm... practically equivalent to a blow-dryer I was so gentle and slow and uniform with the application of the heat... no harm whatsoever inflicted.

    <<< Warning OLD School >>>

    its called metal working.... not reforming..

    just like FREEZING parts going into heated parts... for a good tight fit...
    < even Honda service manuals called out this procedure > for a few jobs.

    100 years.. an still a un-known.

    its great when replacing the "Race" on tapper roller wheel bearings in cars...

    Using care and technique for uniform application of the heat, constant motion, slowly, gently heating... cannot be captured in a single photo... intelligence and patience are required...
