Help. Back wheel still engaged while in Neutral

Hi all
I have the 2008 carby model Speedy and I have been hearing a funny noise while riding like something is rubbing on the wheel. It does not disapear when clutch is pulled in and rolling. When I got home I put it on a stand and started the bike and while it was in Neutral, the back wheel was engaged and running. I confirmed this by trying to stop it with my hand and it was definately in drive mode, It increases with engine revs.
Anyone know what is happening and is it related to the noise I hear while riding ?
Help please.

Derek

The back wheel will turn when the bike is on a stand, engine running in neutral. This is due to residual drag from the oil in your transmission. Even though the output shaft isn't physically hooked up to the input or drive shaft, the oil between them has enough friction to cause it to turn. If you apply the rear brake does the wheel stop? You should be able to hold the rear wheel stopped though.

A noise when driveing the unit can be anything. Do you hear it when you pull in your clutch and throttle back? What does it sound like. Could be from the rear wheel being out of alignment, chain noise, chain too loose rubbing on the swingarm, tire rubbing on the fender....

Yes the noise is still there when clutch is pulled in and throttle off and just rolling. Sounds like it is coming from the front to middle area of the bike. I have checked all alignments, I have checked for clearances for everything near the wheels and guards etc. Have checked chain cover. It has me baffled. It is not constant and it comes and goes every so often. It is not there at startup but comes in after bike is warmed up while riding. (trying to give as much detail as I can here). The flicking type noise is faster, the faster the bike is rolling if you know what I mean.
I should mention it is a tinny type noise and not a deep note

maybe you need to adjust the clutch.

Is it the light buzzing from the front brake disk or the speedometer cable? Both of these are common. The brake noise is harmless, and the speedo cable can be fixed by lubing it.

Did you ever get this figured out? Iím experiencing something very similar, it started when I got my bike back from the dealer following its 500 mile servicing. I canít figure out what the deal is, but the symptoms sound identical. Let me know!

Question Wheel Problem?

You SHOULD be able to stop the wheel from turning w/ your hand on the stand! If not- there is a problem I cant picture in my head? Will have to think about this one?
