I have a 97 748 which I bought new. It has 18K on the clock. The last time a rode it I thought i detected a squeak. I thought it may have been the speedo cable. So I lubed it. This am I go to ride it and the squeak is still there. Bike not moving. I pull the side panels and the noise is in the area of the water pump/ generator. Any input?

Don't know if it would squeak but loose flywheel nut can cause big problems in this area.

Maybe the seal the water pump shaft rides in? I dunno if they squeek when they're going out but, I know they don't last forever. I think a tell tale sign of that particular seal going away is milky oil since coolant will be getting into the engine. ICBW.
