Default S this a bad wheel bearng?

So just noticed today ridding to work a noise by bike is making. i was coming up to a stop sign and went to go into first but i didn't go down an hit neutral so i just let it coast to the stop but i noticed a grinding noise coming from my front when i was casting its not constant its kinda like a grind/rub. so ts like grind then stops grnd ten stops but its quick. so i kept ridding and t would do it when i pulled my clutch in as well and the harder listened i could hear it somewhat underneath the sound of the bike when i was on the gas. i don't thnk ts the brakes because when i get on the front brakes the noise stays the same if it was the brakes i would think the sound would change or go away when i pressed them. any ideas? thanks

Check to see if one of your rotors is warped first. Doesn't hurt to check that before you do anything else.

Probably going to wanna make sure it's adjusted properly. Make sure there's no real tight or loose spots in it. Theres a bunch of How-to's for that on here if you search. If goes out of adjustment every 150 miles or so or there's some major tight spots I'd say it's time for a new chain. Also make sure you're using a decent chain lube. I use spectra something or other from my local honda shop. It seems to be alright, it's real tacky but I get a lot of sling all over my undertail no matter how long I let it sit for after I do it. Someone else on here might have a better suggestion on what to use.
