    Front fork springs creaking

    Hi all

    Just wondering if anybody has had issues with the front fork springs creaking. Since several months now, I am facing a noise when I am passing over a bumpy road or when I am using my brakes to fully stop.
    I guess it is the fork spring but I am not sure because I can't localize where exactly this creaking sound is.

    FYI, I am not doing any rodeo with this bike and the mileage is only 46000 km (28500 miles).

    So, before going back to Triumph for getting a probable "nothing wrong here" explanation, I was wondering if somebody else had the same issue and what was diagnosed to solve the problem?

    I have posted on a French Triumph Trophy group on Facebook, 2 small videos with the noise .. It can give you a better idea of what it looks like.
    - Video 1
    - Video 2

    Any ideas what might be causing this awful noise?

    Facebook tells me your videos are not available to me, so hard to say...

    Watched and listened to the video - that's definitely not right.

    I just wonder though if it is definitely coming fromthe forks -
    to me the creaking noise sounds ( on the video clip ) to be a bit "plasticky",
    which made me I wonder if it might be part of one of the Fairing panels
    that could be moving slightly against another panel and causing the noise ?

    Cheers  :821:

    I'll have a meeting planned mid of august for the 48.000 km service and they will check what is the cause of such noise ...
    My dealer told me that it could be something with the fairing but he is not sure ... So he said that he will take off the fairing and see if the noise is still present or not.
    Anyway, I'll let you know the result after this maintenance.
    Cheers

    My joints sound just like that first thing in the morning  :008:
    But I agree, it does not sound right coming from the Trophy.
