Why dose my rear shock on my 250 dirt bike make a cracking noise


try each suspension bolt in turn just so they are loose and move suspension up and down , as i think that one of the bushes could be dry of grease! when was the last time the rear suspension system and the swing arm pivot spindle was removed and greased up ?? some pivot points mite have a grease nipple , but i suggest if this is the problem to remove and clean bolts and the holes then grease up so to last ! depends how much you use the bike in wet or sandy conditions as when to repeat this also !!

Swing arm bush


Swingarm Bushings

to get the swingarm bushings changed out, you just have to remove the rear wheel, unbolt the lower shock mounts and chain guard, then pull out the swingarm bolt

I have aligned the chain (every couple of months I have to tighten the chain , does it stretch that much!) and when I'm driving the chain noise is louder than the engine . Is this normal??


Raise the rear wheel off of the ground. Spin the rear wheel by hand while running the chain over your hand (wear a surgical glove or use a rag). If the chain gets tight and then loose it has stretched and needs to be replaced. If it is an older Honda (70's), unbolt the rear shocks and see if the swing arm moves from side to side. If this is the case you also need new swing arm bushings. Another sign that the swing arm bushings are bad is if the chain is banging against the swing arm while you are driving down the road.

Resr end of bike seems to twitch at times could it be swingarm


Things to check. Is the chain adjusted correctly and is the rear axle tight. With the rear wheel off the ground can the wheel be rocked around on the axle (Are there bad wheel bearings?). If you still have the problem after these checks, raise the rear wheel off the ground,take off the wheel, unbolt the shock (check mounting bolts for looseness), grab the rear swing arm to see if it moves or wiggles at the pivot points. You probably have bad swing arm bearings. If the swing arm bearings are bad you will probably have to change both bearings and the long inner bushing to fix the problem.

The rear shock on my 2008 125 SX is very squeaky. It is the actual shock that is squeaky, not the point where it goes into the swing arm. Any suggestions??


i doubt its the shock cartridge, it may be the spring against the shock body or the upper or lower connecting joint. could also be the swingarm. remove the shock with bike on center stand and check the movement of your swingarm while checking for noise. at that time you can check the condition of the shock spring and bushings.
