SOURCE: The rear shock on my 2008 125 SX is very squeaky.

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.

You might be best servered by taking your list to your local HD dealer, or calling say a Dennis Kirk, ot J&P Cycles. As they can give you best prices on the package for the parts you need.

1996 Triumph has a clicking/ticking noise when I accelerate. Any idea what it could be?


Hi, Shawn I would love to help you with your engine or chassis noise but I just loaned my brand new pair of listening ears to your local dealer's chief technician so he could take your bike for a test ride and give you his professional opinion and estimate about your noise and repair cost. If you are a little short on "DRACHMA" and a Dealership is not on your list of fun places to visit then perhaps the list below will help soothe your worried mind so you can make an informed decision.

1. Bearings---SCREECH

2. Belts---HUM

3. Brake Rotors---BUZZ

4. Chains---RATTLE

5. Clutches---CHATTER

6. Shifting Trans---CLUNK

7. Front Forks---PLUNK

8. Rear Shocks---SQUEAK

9. Starters---CLICK

10. Solid Lifters---TICK

11. Hydraulic Lifters---TAP

12. Pistons---SLAP

13. Connecting Rods Go---KNOCK-KNOCK---who's there, it's me "DEATH"

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 !!

Use a flat screwdriver to unseat the tabs that hold the front top cover in place. This will expose the flywheel and pedal arm connection points. Rotate the flywheel by hand and determine whether lubrication will accomplish the repairs. If the bearings are exposed, use a grease gun with an extension nozzle and lubricate both bearings with lithium grease. If the bearings are damaged or sealed, proceed to the next step.

2

Remove the front and side covers on the main frame. Hold the flywheel with one hand and use a box wrench to loosen the bolts that secure the pedal arms at each side of the flywheel. Pull the arms away from the flywheel and remove the bearings from each side.

3

Test the bearings as before. Lubricate exposed bearings with lithium grease and reinstall them. Sealed bearings must be replaced. Reattach the pedal arms to the flywheel. Replace the main frame covers and front top cover to complete the repairs.

My Dual CS 1264 Does not work. The arm swings out over the record, drops slightly and then returns to its resting position on its base


It seems that the special grease is old. There is a wheel moving the toneam. Remove any old grease from it and try again. If you need further instructions or a way to get new grease please refer to www. dual-board.de This is the worlds largest knowledge base for vintage Dual turntables. It is in german, but feel free to post in english, most people here in germany speak english, too.

Hi, having a problem with the suspension of my GT 250. When i ride it the rear suspension seems to go down and stick down then reluctantly come back up...any ideas please?


  1. Shock absorbers are shot
  2. Add spring pressure to shocks
  3. Swingarm needs to be greased
  4. All of the above
If the shocks are shot then you will need to find replacements. If I recall correctly, the bottom half of the shock had an adjustment ring that turned to add spring pressure. There were 4 settings indexed in the ring. The swing arm may need cleaning and grease. If stiff, it could be the problem. You may need to remove the wheel and the shocks to get the swingarm off for adding grease at the hinge point.

Noisy rear suspension


is there a grease fitting on the swing arm? take out the bolts that hold the shock in place one at a time and grease them. use a bit of WD40 at all the pivot points until you find the source of the squeek.
