Creeky Steering

Recommended Posts

I have a Husky FE250 with 44 hrs hrs on it. I noticed today that the steering feels a bit creaky when I'm sitting on the bike. However, if I take the bike and put it on a lift stand and unweight the front, I do not get the squeaky steering. Seems to happen only when weighted.

Any idea what this could be?

Could this have something to do with the steering head bearing? With only 44 hrs, I didn't think I'd have any issues here just yet.

Check it, I'll bet it needs grease. I do all mine before even riding. Peace of mind.

Pull it and check. The couple ive had creak were ruined.

Don't know what year your bike is, but my handlebar mount rubber bushings are noisy as hell. Pulled out and greased all good now. If not that then steering bearing as mentioned above
