I got a new honda elite 80 and there a squeak in the rear of it

Posted by on

  • wynndebbie Dec 03, 2008

    VEHICLE: 2005 Honda Elite CH80

    MILES: 296 currently

    PROBLEM: Squeals when you take off from a stop, for about 1-3 seconds -

    CONCEPTUALIZATION: This has to be the centripetal clutch making noise as it begins to connect. I assume if I took it apart and filed down the leading edges of the contact material it would not make this noise.

    PARTIAL SOLUTION: Another writer said his ELITE always did this and he owned it until 4800 miles.

It's a common problem on the Elite 80.
The entire tail lights and plastic are hang off a two posts.
The fix is to add foam tape on the plastic panels.
Wherever plastic overlap,add a long strip of foam strip.
This will take care of the plastic noise.
The single shock + spring can make nosie also.
Do a quick clean up with car wash soap.
Do a good job on the shock and spring.
Dry off the shock and spray some DRY film lube. NOT WD-40
Make sure it's dry lube.
Spray the travel portion of the shock and the base of the spring.
