Squeaking in TTR-125 rear suspension?

7 posts in this topic

Everytime i sit down on my bike it squeaks. It's coming from the rear shock. I'm not sure what to do from here on. Should i take the bike apart and clean/grease/lube everything up? Anything help appreciated!

It is a good idea; make sure you properly torque the pivot bolts/nuts when all is said and done.

Yes, but insert "inspect for rust/deterioration of the bearings" immediately after "take bike apart"....the bearings are probably toast.

just spray some deep penetrating lube or even just wd 40 around the shock and swingarm. if this doesnt help then you may need to replace the bushings.

Thanks everybody! I took the rear linkage apart and found the bearings dry. I greased them up and everything is running smooth.
