I've just put the bike up on rear stand and added stabil in as part my 1st winterization.

I started to the engine to run for 5 minute in neutral and notice that the back wheel were spinning and the speedo around 2-3 mph.

Is this normal? how can it spin if the bike is not in gear???[:M73]

oil moves some parts, even if they aren't in contact w/ each other.
i'm not sure, but you may be able to stop it with your hand.

Thats normal. The input shaft is always turning. There is enough friction involved to turn the first gear set. You can stop it with your hand. Manual transmission cars will do the same thing if the driveline doesn't have enough resistance to stop it.

its normal, cars and trucks do this too if there in neutral when they're in the air, the input to the transmission is alway going to be turn when the clutch is engage with the engine running. the fluid in the transmission will act as a fluid coupler and force the output gear set to spin similar as if they were engaged, its just fluid dynamics. no problem...
