    4 banger or straight 6 owners

    Just FYI, the models with the carbon swing arms especially. There is a constant squeaking that occurs with compression of the rear suspension. No matter how much you tighten the bolts, pivots, etc, it never goes away.

    I tracked my squeak down to the FIRST disc brake hose guide on the carbon arm. My straight six was new and squeaked all the time. I put a self adhesive piece of fuzzy velcro on the guide before zip tying the hose back down and the squeak went away.

    I don't have my straight six anymore but figured this might help some.
