It's a brand new fork I just put on my xtc frame. Once I sit on the bike, it makes a squeaking sound as if the seals are so tight and grabbing on to the stanchions. When I did get it installed, it was raining so I had to clean and wipe down my bike. Not sure if the soap I used was an issue or not. Fox does top off the oil in their forks right? I was hearing to use 'slick honey' on the stanchions? The stanchions are coated kashima coated.

The soap I used is automotive soap mixed with wax. Kinda surprised knowing it's a brand new fork, and it's squeaking the moment I sit on it. The dude at the shop said kashima coated stanchions have a break-in period... is this true?
