Sounds like you might have a siezed brake caliper, it keeps a little presure on the brake pads and rotter. Next time you have the bike on the centre stand ,try turning the rear wheel by hand, if it is hard to turn and squeaks ,that's the problem. If not lift the front wheel off the ground and try the same to it.

I sometimes hear my tires squeak on the smooth concrete floor in my garage.
Maybe that is what you're hearing. My squeaks appear when I push the bike back and forth to wiggle it out of the garage.

It may be either, brakes or tires.
Next time you take it out, put a nice thick layer of moly-grease on both of the tires and all three brake rotors.
I think that will end your problems! :cooldevil::cheeky1::gunhead:




This is April 1st. Right?

Mine does the same. To me, it sounds like it is coming from the rear shocks or swing arm. I'm not sure what it is. It is most prevelent when the bike has been sitting for a while. Once I mount I hear it when place all my weight on the saddle.



It is not affecting performance so I just let it sqeak.

You're sure it definitely the bike ? ( None of us are getting any younger :D)

I cant get out of a chair these days without sounding like something out of a porn movie :D

Try lubing the speedo cable also.Mine was a noisey bugger until I did .

Hi midwing , it only gets worse and then it stops because everything is worn past wear out. Keep on biking, that will be a sure solution.



Brakes especially front pick up fine dirt particles and when the disk is rotated backwards under slow speed they cause vibration, thus squeal. Rear can do it also, the cons of disk brakes---go forward and the crap is gone , rubbing of disk and pads clean off the crap and rebuild again till the next backwards, leaning movement. Never go backwards:D

It's a noisy chain. Clean it with a can of propwash first, and lube with OliveOyl.

My Shadow used to do the same thing when I took it out of the barn. Found a mouse in one exhaust pipe...:cheeky1:

my bike is making the squeek you are talking about. i can push up and down on the rear while it is on sidestand and it groans and squeeks, im sure it is the shocks, i havent removed my seat to observe if there is any way to get some wd40 on the shock shafts, but i bet if i can it will go away. it is on a wood floor so i am sure it is not my tires.

Might be where the swing arm is attached to the frame. My 1100 makes the same noise. I just haven't gotten around to pinpointing the source.
