Squeaks In The Suspension Or Joints?
Written by skeandco on 9/30/2012 at 12:00 am

Hi Coasters,

Since Bobb brought up the subject of dash rattles, I have one that I haven't seen asked.

Squeaky suspension...... Is it common for a PC to be squeaky when riding down the road. It is very apparent when going slow or on rough surfaces, such as my dirt road or the parking lot at work. I don't notice it so much at highway speeds. Probably due to wind and engine noise. To me it is quite loud, but that could just be me. Are there places or points on the bike that should be grease or oiled regularly that I don't know about that would quieten these down. I have pushed the bike up and down while sitting still but it just doesn't do the same squeaking.

I can live with the squeaks if I have to, but I am used to being silent, stealthy and svelte. Squeaky doesn't mix well.

Thanks

WNC Steve

    He said he does not hear the squeak stooping still and bouncing the suspension. Shock mounts squeak as soon as you sit on the bike. I've replaced the shock bushings on two of my bikes. Greasing them is only a temp fix and the rubber mounts along

    I have had a squeak in the rear suspension that realy annoyed me too. I found that the springs were rubbing on the shock bodies, so dismantled the shock and put large electrical shrink tube over the shock body and heated it to shrink it on. I also fi
