    E150 fork squeaks and creaks...anyone else?

    Does anyone else have an E150 fork that creaks at every metal-to-metal joint on the thing? It's always the worst after a trail ride, the Arizona talcum powder makes everything sound like hell. I've gone through and made sure all the bolts are to proper torque, but it hasn't changed a thing. Is this a common thing with dual crown forks or just this one? If anyone else has found a way to alleviate the problem, let me know!

    I've read reports of people taking the bolts out, greasing them, and then torquing them back down to spec. Might be worth a shot. I still haven't gotten my e-150 back from the shock for a broken rebound/compression (got in 3 rides so far).

    I had the same prob. I lubed everything: the stantions, bolts, handlebar and now it dosent creak at all. Before it would creak badly when pulling on the bars.

    Yep - agree with the others......remove all the pinch bolts (especially the the top ones by the stem), clean off the blue loctite, regrease and tighten them back up.

    I'm sure with mine it was the hub that squeaked.

    Mine creaked always - especially on reduced travel - always sounded like headset but wasn't.

    Put bluntly it was sh$$t

    I pick up my new liquid blue heckler tomorrow!
