06 WR450 fork squeak

Recommended Posts

Recently had forks and shock revalved and resprung

and since the work was done the forks now have a noise on sharp

bumps that sounds like the springs rubbing internally. Is that possible?

Sometimes aftermarket springs have a slightly different ID, OD and/or length. This along with sometimes using a lower oil height after service can make them noisier than usual. This can also lead to premature oil contamination (extra rubbing and scrapeing). Although it's somewhat normal to hear these noises you may want to have things checked out again just to be sure.
