Default Clicking noise upon hard brake

Hello all,

I changed my rear tire today and after putting everything back together I took the bike out for test ride and I noticed that whenever I apply hard rear brake I am getting light clicking noise from somewhere in the crank case. I haven't tried to pin-point exactly where it is coming from but feels like somewhere on the left side close to where the stator is. This happens at both medium 35-40 ish and low 10-15 ish mph if I apply hard brakes. Does anyone have any idea what this might be.

Thanks in advance

Did you maybe install the belt too tight or off center ?? The front pulley is in the same area as the stator.. Just an idea .

That is a great point. I just checked the belt tension and I though I tightened it correctly but turns out it was too loose. I just corrected it but unfortunately the clicking/knocking sound is still there, I even took the cover off the front pulley to make sure there isn't any visible slipping or anything. It is happening even if I just roll the bike forward 10-15 feet and then apply hard brake, I hear a single distinct click/knock kinda similar to what you hear when you shift the bike from neutral to first.
For a moment i though that it was my side stand which could be knocking back against the frame as there is a slight play in it, but after checking turns out that isn't it either.

It is the opposite side but do you have the spacer on the brake side positioned correctly or properly torqued rear axle nut.

I hate to say pull the wheel off again but maybe you have a rear needle bearing issue that just reared it's ugly head.. common failure with the Vstar1300.. can be $$$ if not caught soon enough.

The rear pads looked fine and had sufficient life in them. I also tried to check the wheel for any play due to damaged bearings when trying to move it side to side and it seemed good.

@mrdub27 I also wiped the grease off the bearings with long metallic roller which I think are the needle bearings you are mentioning. I don't think I noticed anything wrong with them when I reapplied grease to it. Would you please elaborate a little on what might be the symptoms of the needle bearing failing.

Also to mention again the clicking/knocking I feel are coming from somewhere in the front near the crankcase or belt front pulley.

The obvious issue with the needle bearings is the will start to grind.. and sometimes it's too late to address.. as far as the front pulley area.. a few guys have noted the front pulley not being torqued on properly and it will come loose and cause "clicking" noises..double check your front pulley.. seems tight and is tight are not the same thing.
