After the race this past weekend I noticed when I sat on my bike it made a low pitched squeaking sound. It sounds like its coming from the lower part of the spring but you cant really tell. I repacked all the bearings in the rear suspension and swingarm about a month ago. The bike didnt get that dirty at the race but it was pretty dusty.Has anyone else had this low pitched sound coming from their rear shock or know what it could be?

Spray a shot of WD40 on the shock shaft and around the lower anti bottom cushion. My KX500 is notoriuos for squeeking after a wet ride.
