    Default MT trog whine

    I have a MT trog on 2002 HD road glide started to get a whine in the rear on the left think it's a outer axle bearing. does anyone have a cut away of the rear end or a manual for serving the trog. I know it's based on the 7.5 ford rear end but i don't see a way to drain or add fluid. if anyone wants to convert from drums to disk the wilwood 950-140-11403-DR kit fits ford small flange rear ends

    You might try calling MotorTrike. Ask for Richard. He is the head tech.

    Rodney, Welcome to Trike Talk from West Virginia.

    Your differential is a sealed unit but may require grease from time to time. I defer to Richard here.

    The noise may be a wheel bearing but if you did that disc brake upgrade you mentioned (meant for an automotive application) perhaps it is a result of the upgrade. Are your wheels tight ???

    Default whine

    The wheel bearings were good one of the carrier bearing locked up and eat something found pieces inside the housing trying find a picture of the carrier to see if it's missing anything or if these were independent parts. but I am rebuilding the whole rear end the date on it is 11/26/03 so seventeen year time for total rebuild. if anyone has a parts diagram or a picture of the carrier I could use it.
