try putting some wd40 on the fork legs then pump them up and down a couple of times then wipe them clean as it may be just a little dirt is causing the squeek and the wd will solve it.

My bet is that it is actually coming from the speedometer. Try disconnecting either end of the speedo cable and see if the noise stops. If so, then all you need to do is apply a drop or two (but no more!) of oil into the speedometer-head bushing. Do this by removing the instrument cluster so you can flip it over - then put some light viscosity oil into the area where the speedo cable goes in. CAUTION; do not use more than one or two drops of oil - and do not leave the instruments upside down for any length of time. Failure to heed these warnings can cause oil to drip onto the face of the unit, making an unsightly (and un-fixable) mess.
Please let me know if this fixes the noise.

Testimonial: "Thanks very much. Problem solved - It used to whine like a banshee now it's sweet. Three cheers to you. You are the man ! Davydd"
Did you do the work on the carbs? Do you have the equipment and expertise a pro uses to balance the carbs? If you had this done by a pro, take it back amd make them fix it.
You are right, this is dangerous and expensive. I suggest you have a Yamaka shop take a look at your motorcycle.

I would say you have a blocked or damaged jet. I would strip down the carburettor and replace any badly worn jets and clean thoroughly. When refitting the tick over mixture screw , screw it home and back out about 2 1/2 turns. That will be somewhere near it.
Hope that helps.
