I have a 2002 honda silverwing and the right fork was leaking oil so I replaced the seal put it all back together and rode it about 60 miles now if I hold the break and compress the front forks I have a squeaking sound the seal seams to have fixed the leak and Im not sure if it coming from the fork I worked on or the other or both any suggestions ?

I'm going to jump in one this one because I am having a similar problem. When the front end compresses and returns there is a squeaking noise that sounds like an old set of box springs. It is not intermittent - it happens every single time. And it's loud enough for people around the bike to hear. If anyone can recommend the "squeak points" I should check I will be most greatful.

I rode a dual suspension mountain bike for many years (actually had four of them). We would get squeaks all the time. The sound can be deceptive - sounds like its coming from one place but it actually originates elsewhere.

Although this might sound stupid, but try turning your rear shocks a couple of times each way. Grit would often get between the spring and the shock and cause a squeak on our mountain bikes. Otherwise, try pouring some water over the entire shock to rinse it clean.

I know this is a very old thread, but I have the same problem with my front suspension.
Is it worth stripping the forks down and turning the springs a half turn?
Also what about putting in slightly heavier oil to stiffen up the front end?

Turning the springs around won't do a thing .The best improvement is to install Hyperpro progressive springs .You can buy them in the UK at 1/2 the cost that that I payed to get shipped to Canada. $159.00 in the UK  $307.00 shipped to Canada via US . The money exchange is what kill's us,ordering out of Canada.
