Charlie really has a siff rear wheel on his 650 Burgman. When you start it, it will not spin like your usual Burgman. Give it gas & it will spin for a while then stop. Side by side (Mine & His) you can take your foot and easily spin the rear wheel on mine. Not his. And with this condition his is a bear to move around.

He's had the rear wheel off to change the tire. Doesn't seem that theirs any brakes hanging up. He's changed the rear end oil & put back in what the shop manual required as we've done on mine. There's no noise coming from the rear nor can you smell anything like a brake frying etc.

Any ideas on how to free this up so it one can move it around without grunting. I don't know if his gas mileage is affected.

Still sounds like brakes. Unbolt the rear caliper and pull it off the disc, then rotate the rear tire...

Has he checked the adjustment on the parking brake.  It's pretty simple to adjust but if you do it wrong the rear brake will drag. 

Also has he check to see that the cable or parking brake handle is not sticking.  When the brake is released there should be very little tension on the parking brake spring at the rear caliper.
