Im almost willing to bet that its not your suspesion pivot that is creaking. Try dropping your seat a mm or two, or tightening your seat collar. 99.9% of the time, is almost always the seat thats making that noise.BushPilot said:Anyone had this and found a fix? It only makes the noise when the suspension gets pretty active like standing up and romping on the pedals or just coasting and bouncing the suspension. I believe I eliminated any other causes, everything is tight.
Yhea, had the problem when I was off the seat too. Have you tried dropping it?BushPilot said:I was waiting for that suggestion. If you read my post you will realize that it creaks when I am off the saddle completely.
That is the solution. No half-arse solution. Disassemble, grease, loctite, and torque. If you skip any of the steps you will likely have a return of the problem. Do the steps once and do it right.Parky said:My 2007 Heckler had the same creaking noise. In the end I stripped and the main pivot axle, cleaned it all including the pinch bolts. Re-greased the axle, put loctite on the pinch bolts, put it all back together and all is well now.
