Squeak
« on: May 06, 2015, 12:52:59 pm »
I have a squeak coming from the front end. It sounds plasticky so I started taking off the Tupperware one piece at a time the bike is now naked! Still squeaks I also lubed the fork seals and am now starting on the shroud. I wish I'd never started but I'm on a mission!
It is not the pads they have been changed also.
Has anyone else experienced the same and ignored or fixed it?
Thanks :440:

Coming to a stop when the forks are compressed. Or stopped and bouncing up and down on the forks

New Pads generate more dust to begin with (bedding-in).

Did they smear copper-slip on the rear of the pads to prevent wear/abrasion/corrosion between pistons and pad-backs ?

That's two possible sources of a squeak..

If it's not the forks or the brake pads, how about any of the places
where wiring cables / brake lines are clipped in that could be rubbing as they are flexed ?

The tiniest bit of movement sometimes can generate an annoying squeak, as in the rubber dust covers where the windshield arms ride up and down.  Don't know for sure but may be a possiblility if they are dry.  Worth a look.

Just for information,

when I recieved my Trophy, I noticed a strange click coming from the front at each stop...

I tried to shake the bike without succes till I understood that it was the unlock of the storage pocket...
