well, just when i started to get comfy with the ride yesterday...

as i pulled up to a light and the engine sounds died down i heard a rubbing/scraping sound from the rear end.

i flexed the shock and the sound went away.

got to work and then inspected the rear end and found one of the two mud flaps that are in front of the rear tire was not flat against the frame--it was hanging about 1/2" from the tire--

i guess the air forces or road vibes push it up against the tire.

i've moved both flaps up and over the horizontal cross member. (instead of hanging straight down in front of the tire.
they still cover the innards--

weird.

Yep Chilliy too here this morning 49 but supposed to get up to 70 next couple of days. How could a piece of rubber cause a grinding noise? But again I am half deaf and the other half just flat ass can't hear. Those little rubber flaps are held on with a couple of rivets in each one. Might want to see if one of the rivets came out and let it twist
