I have a bad squeek in my front end suspension.
I have tried spraying lub, but the squeek still remains.
Any pointers - What is the best product for squeeks

Take your front shocks loose from their mounts and clean them thoroughly. Then wipe some grease in the mounting tabs and in the shock bushings and reinstall. You don't need a ton of it, just enough to coat. I did this after about the first 100 miles and haven't reapplied it since and I cross a lot of creeks and rivers. Depending on your riding conditions, you may have to reapply sometime later.
Hope this helps.
hey mac 4man how much riding do you have up north there in the tar sands????and yeah i did what he said with the grease thing it's worked for a long time now.
I'll give it a shot.
We aren't allowed to drive on the Oilsand becuase it is all restricted to minesites. You wouldn't want to ride on it anyway because you and your bike would be covered in tar.
BUT we have awesome trails and a perfect area just north of us "The Athabasca Sand Dunes" ....Sand and lakes everywhere.

Here are a few pics from my trip to the dunes...Camping and Quading for 5 days....Heaven.
That place looks like a great deal of fun.
