Your tire is too big.
You forgot to fill it with air.
Your engine is out of oil.

Take your pick.

Did you check to make sure the wheel was spinning freely after you changed the tire?

Did you use a torque wrench when you tightened the rear bolt?

Just noticed you said the grinding is mid-point back on the bike.


Any chance you removed the final drive when you replaced the tire? It's possible the shaft is not fully engaged in the U-Joint. The drive shaft has a spring in the final drive that would probably allow forced reassembly even if the drive shaft wasn't fully engaged in the u-joint up front.

Use a broom handle to swing the coupler back in place, then slide the drive back in. It is a bit of a pain in the butt, but manageable.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
