TTR 230 Squeeky suspension?


Recommended Posts

Just got my 230 in the fall, been just took it out for a ride the other day and near the end of the ride I noticed squeeky suspension? I believe it is the rear, maby cause it was dirty or am I being too hard on it? Has anyone noticed this on their TTR?

Thanks for the help

Hi. Usually a sign of dry suspension bearings. Do not let anyone tell you to squirt some WD (which is not a lubricant for bearings) or lube into the pivots. That will only attract dirt; yes, it may quiet the squeak for a day or less.

The only way is to take the nuts and bolts off, pop out with your finger any bushings or sleeves and simply put bearing grease into the pivot bearings.

Otherwise a bearing will go completely dry and fall apart while still on the bike and then you get bad slop/play.
