  • TLR rear shock squeak

    OK finally cleared some room in my garage and got the TLR rear suspended from the rafters.

    ready to strip out the rear shock and replace with one i got from ebay for 20 quid. also gonna take off swingarm and regrease in case its that.

    Any tips would be appreciated. [in leymans terms plz]

      I had a squeak in the rear of my TLS that was driving me nuts. I couldn't find out where it was coming from, but a couple shots of WD-40 on the shock piston rod cleared it right up.

          I would imagine it's the same mounting idea as the TLS and for me I put some grease on the damper mounting bolts and the surfaces where the damper and the mount meet... not a peep since.

            The S has a problem with a squeaky rear, the R not that I know of. Some lube on the shock piston rod should be the solution. If not, have you checked all the mountings for the shock and damper units. And I mean all the mountings.

            I've used locktight on all the mountings, and lube all moving parts on my rear each and every time I clean and lube my chain. Prolly won't make any difference, but it's peace of mind
