i just rode my bike that i picked up a few days ago around my house and when i bounce on the pegs hard with both legs the front left fork squeals if compressed hard enough. When i bought the bike i noticed the left fork was leaking so i was able to lower the price of the bike a bit for that. so im assuming a lot more ran out than i might have expected? i think they cover the fork filling and how much and what oil in the manual dont they?

When you,re bouncing on the bike , you,re probably using the front brake . And , isn't the brake on the left side ? I'd bet the noise is no big deal , but you should check the fork oil level . The manual tells what the proper level is and how to check it .
