Squeeky Shocks

Recommended Posts

Guest Fox300exchic

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

      Suspension Question? Shocks for 250X
      I bought the wife a 2019 honda 250X,it does not have adjustable shocks,I'm thinking of maybe getting one  as well,for her she does not notice it as much as I  do but the ride is not as good as my 1991 250X with adjustable shocks.
      So I'm looking at maybe getting new shocks if I get one for myself,I find these.

      Hi there i was needing to ask a question. I may soon be getting a UTV of one sort or another and not sure what is good or better to avoid?  So far i hear great things about the Arctic Cat Prowler and Havoc, and many speak well of the Kawasaki Mule all but the 610?  
       
       So what are your thoughts and especially experiences?  What have you had and used in farm life and trail riding that has held up well or hasn't?

      What is a good option for a 13 year old that is dying to get her very own atv to ride? Thanks in advance for your recommendations. I currently own a Polaris Sportsman 570 and have been happy with the Polaris sportsman line but have ruled out other brands.

      Hi guys I have a 2003 Arctic 250 4X4 it starts idles and runs great for about 10 min. then it spits and sputters and dies but it starts right up like nothing happened idles good till you give gas and it does it again let off the gas and it's idling great again this goes on for about 15 to 20 min. and then it takes off runs good all day like nothing was wrong.
      I cleaned the carburetor it looked like a new one inside found a little gunk in one orifice, new air filter no crimped lines air line to tank good I did put a meter on the battery idling it said 16.5 V that's high I think would a voltage regulator cause this?
      Suzuki shop wanted to sale me a stator for $556.00 but said it could be something else also thought I'd see what you guys say about it
      Thanks

      It's time to replace the shocks and struts.  Looking for some stiffer springs than the OEM as I use this for farm work and I put heavy loads on the rear and haul small trailers frequently.  I've seen a couple aftermarket offerings that say they're 10% or so heavier duty.  Any other options for something a little stronger / stiffer?  Thanks.
    • By BackyardTom
      Just bought this, I'll tell you it's almost mint. Couple issues, 1. He said he put new front shocks on but getting clunks when I hit a decent bump. 2. It's liquid cooled is regular 50/50 Prestone good?  Thanks in advance

      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. 

    • By Phil Schmidt
      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.
