Creaking front end - solved

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd share something I was struggling with for a while and finally fixed.

Front end would creak quite badly when turning the wheel from side to side, audible when the engine was off. Torqued head bearings - that wasn't it. Tightened the front mudguard - I was sure the fork brace had some play in it - that wasn't it. I turned out to be the allen head bolt under the right fork leg that clamps the axle tight. That was loose. Bit embarrassing really, I obviously forgot to tighten it after putting a new front tire on. That is all!
