This is hard to explain but my Viking makes an odd noise mostly at low speed or going downhill from the drivetrain. It's not like metal on metal or grinding. I've had it to the dealer and was told its normal. Anyone else have a strange noise??

Me either, I wouldn't think that was normal, sounds like some gears or cogs bouncing around if I've got the right noise?

One way bearing will stall and kill your bike when you slow down. The noise I had in mine was a right rear wheel bearing. After checking all the bearings the front left was out also.

Jack it up on some jack stands and start turning the wheels and listen for anything abnormal. You can also chock the front wheels with it jacked up and fire it up with a buddy in the cockpit to mash the gas while you listen and pin point where it might be coming from.

My Vi also is making same noise. I removed rear seats and plastic and drove it the noise is coming from drive line. It is vibrating in the Bering collar that supports drive line. Not sure if there is a fix? Perhaps a new one might be a tighter fit. It is annoying as **** though!!!

Ok so my noise was coming from the short driveshaft between the engine and rear-end. There is a plastic bushing in there that was busted and seal was leaking a bit. No more annoying noise.
