Ok, any other guess you guys? I tore the bike apart last night. Rear wheel bearings are good, tire is good, torque are all up to speck on remount. Rear brake checks out, I went through every link of the chain for binding, measured the chain slack at 3 different points and it checks out. Rolls without any resistance when it is on the jack. I give. I still have this thumping at lower speeds, probably just can't hear it as the speed goes up. It is worse when I am braking, and I feel it in the pegs. Clutch in or out, it doesn't matter. I can hear it, too. Hard to isolate, but is is coming somewhere from the pegs back. 7200 miles on the bike, and I also lubed the bobbins, just in case.
Swing are bearings? I am doubting this, because of the low mileage, and the bike has yet to see rain. Oh, head bearing also torque correct, but I know what those feel like when they go.
