Remove string and check limb pocket inserts and limbs for delamination or coming apart. You can buy string dampners if it is just string slap.

That is the brake pads slapping in the mounting bracket . When the brakes where done did they use new mounting hardware > Did they lube the contact points for the pad slides etc... Your better off taking it to an ASE certified repair shop , not a tire an brake shop . Or the ford dealer .

Squeaking noise when drawing back Barnett vortex bow

The four rubber grommets where the string is attached to the limbs need some DRY lubricant. When drawing, the grommets 'slip', and that slip 'plucks' at the string creating the creaks. Keep applying dry graphite to these points and the bow will quiet up nicely.

Why does the bow length need to match my draw length?

The bow length needs to match your draw length because the bow limb is designed to be used at a particular draw length range. For instance if you use a bow with limbs too long for your draw length, you won't be able to flex the limbs enough to make them efficient.

How does a bow work?

A bow is a flexible arc which shoots aerodynamic projectiles called arrows. Essentially, the bow is a form of spring powered by a string. As this string is drawn, energy is stored in the flexible limbs of the bow; the energy is transferred to the arrow when the string is released, projecting it much farther than a weapon could be thrown.

What is the difference between Dacron, Fast Flight & D97 string?

Dacron isthe standard for traditional bows. It has some stretch to it. Therefore, it isa little more forgiving for your bow. It is also a little quieter. Fast Flight and D97 don'tstretch as much and therefore transfer more energy to your arrow. It may giveyour increased performance. D97 will give you slightly better performance thanthe Fast Flight. Make sure that your limb tips are reinforced to be able to useFast Flight and D97.

Clacking noise at different engine idles on my Yamaha V Star

Lots of bikes make a clacking in the transmission , especially when cold at idle. Basically the engine accelerates and decelerates between each piston firing, and you hear the backlash in the gears slapping back and forth. Without hearing it I can't say for sure, but find someone else with a similar bike and see if it sounds the same.
