    Feak'n Creak'n CVA Resolved

    Hi All, figured something out that most here probably already know but just in case...

    After some wet and rough riding on my Jet 9 Alloy I had some creaking develop...somewhere. It was pretty bad.

    I chased it down to the lower CVA linkage. I was a little reluctant to take apart my pivot joints but did it anyway. It was pretty darn easy. I cleaned everything up nice and reassembled putting some plastic friendly grease, just a dab, on the rubbing parts. Done.

    All squeaking and creaking gone! Disclaimer; I did NOT use a torque wrench for the 15 N-m torque... What? Those things are pricey and my bike is alloy I just snugged them up. Torque wrench is on my tool wish list. I might just stop by my local shop and double check the torque...maybe.

    The take away for me is that this is a super easy job and will be done on every major cleaning.

    Yep, it isn't rocket surgery. I'm glad to see a member on here posting a positive outcome from some normal maintenance. Keep up the good work and enjoy that fine nine-r.
