What on earth is this noise!!?

Recommended Posts

i just purchased a 2000 model ktm 520 exc, and everything is perfect except for a creaking noise from the rear, seems to be suspension, possibally. i have a video showing it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8E3OoNRbABU

it happens only when the rear end is moved/compressed and happens at various stages of the compression stroke of the rear suspension.

what could it be?

please help its annoying

(if the video doesnt work, imaging a creeking door from a horror movie, exactly the same)

oil in the suspension? or grease on pivot points?

Oh yeah that's right... Another crappy guess would be worn/VERY uncared for linkage bearings???

The problem is that you "sprayed wd40 all over it". You should spray a spot and check to see if the noise is gone to isolate it. You can just take apart,grease and inspect every part you sprayed and chances are it needs it anyway.
