Bike makes squeaking noise when being pushed

Recommended Posts

Chain, rear wheel bearing, shock linkage bearings, also if the kickstand is contacting the swingarm it can squeak. Check the easy stuff first.

If you suspect rear wheel bearings first get it on a center stand and turn the wheel by hand to feel for resistance/squeaking. Then remove the wheel and turn the bearings by hand to feel for unusual resistance, scraping, squeaking, grinding, etc. Bearing should turn smooth, even and quiet.
