Squeeky Shocks

Recommended Posts

Can someone tell me why my shocks are squeeking and what to do about it? I've cleaned them and it didnt do any good.

I think you will find that it isnt the Shock itself but the Rubber Bushings in the Shock Mounting points....Or,,,If it is Prevelent in the Rear of the Bike it could be your Swinger Bolt Bearings or the likes...Hope that Helps....

Yea, what MWKE said. Just take the mount bolt out and put a little grease in the shock eye, and put it back together. The same thing can happen with the steering stem mount.

WHERE is the Squeeking coming From???? Front, Rear,, All Around??? How about your Swingarm Bolt....Did you pull that and Check your Bearings???? Grease them??? If Grease doesnt help them then I would say order some New Bushings and it wouldnt hurt to order new Swinger Bearings if your going to go as far as Removing the bolt.. Other than that I dont know what to tell ya..:P When you do all this,,,,Just be sure to hold your Tongue Right and everything should be fine.....This maneuver usually helps mebiggrin

      Just wondering if anyone here knows where I could possibly find a replacement/substitute rear shock for a 1989 Yamaha Moto 4 250?
      any help would be appreciated.

      I destroyed the bushings getting the bolt out of the front shock.  Does anyone know what size bushings the bottom of the shock takes?  I figure if I know the size I can find some bushings online.
