Has anyone else experienced this? When I turn the fork side to side, there is a squeaking noise like something is rubbing. I had my dealer look at it while it was being serviced but they weren't much help.

Every... Single... One... of these bikes does this, if what you're hearing is what I think it is. The way the cables are routed, something is rubbing on something, and we all have the same issue. Watch a few videos of guys who own these, and you'll hear it on theirs too. At about the 6:40 point on this one you can hear it:

Nothing to be concerned about.

Well, that’s good to hear...I think. I’m happy to know there’s nothing wrong, but it bugs the heck out of me.
I suspect it bugs all of us. Just one of the bike's quirks. Like those frame welds and the exhaust tip "bandaids". I suppose you could wrap some masking tape or something around some of the cables until you resolve it. But we basically just have to live with it.

Just did a forum search (which, I know, I should have done initially) and found this thread from 2017.


One poster claims to have found the source of the noise...and a solution. I’m going to try it, and I’ll report back.

Yes, allegedly the cables were they route behind the headlight will rub on the plastic causing that squeak noise. Others claim if you spray it with a silicone spray it will help with your squeaking noise. Let us know if that works out.

I used silicon spray on it this morning and the squeak is gone! I'm not sure for how long. It may need occasional reapplication, but it's quiet for now. I just sprayed the general area behind the headlight and under the speedometer.
