Squeaking front end repair

Your bike probably squeaks going anywhere from 10mph up to 35 or even 40mph.
That is because the front axle is waaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyy to tight.You need to loosen it up.

The best way is to put it up on stands,and remove the axle completely. You then want to lube all the parts that rest on the axle with something like white lithium grease(it normally comes in a spray can so it is easy) you then reinstall the axle and just snug it down some.The torque spec is like 65ft lbs. start there.But I personally found this is still too tight.

You can also just loosen it and re torque it to spec.
