Is the back wheel suppose to move when the bike is in neutral?

yes :) just like neutral on a car!
I mean it moves forward on its own when it is in neutral, like it does when its in gear. I have it on bike stands right now, that is why I noticed it.

Were you able to ship today? I got the old exhaust off and waiting for the new one to be put on.

yes - just like a car ;). seriously, the wheel will move in neutral with the motor running on a rear stand, but not enough to move the bike if on the ground. you should easily be able to stop the wheel with your hand or foot.

Thanks for clearing it up!
