Squeak, Squeak, Squeak…….

Squeak, Squeak, Squeak…….
Love the Maverick; had a Commander X and this is just a solid upgrade to that. Only issue I have is a annoying squeak. It sounds like it is coming form that back. Thought suspension at first, but it sounds more rotational. Anyone have the same issue? Anyone have a repair solution?

Yep brake rotor squeaking against the pads. Mine does that too.

Solution? Go faster? Turn up the tunes?

Got mine two weeks ago and mine does too. Can you adjust the brake calipers to not rub? I took off my wheels and could hardly turn the rotors. As for the chewing up on the inside wheels, mine did that to. I think rocks are getting hung up on that guard that is almost touching the rim.

Was it the caliper doing it or the Mud Scraper they have built into it? Only way I can see the caliper causing this is if it had a bolt come loose or mud packed in so bad rocks got stuck.

Another thing is the shock bolt and bushings will squeak and drive u nits. Take the bolt out and grease them, they dry out real fast.

AGREED…everyone should check their shock bushings as they come dry from the factory and if let unattended will destroy the bushings and make them very difficult to get out.

Another reason is because the stock O-rings are made of cheap Nitrile rubber. Many of us are also seeing issues with the O-rings on the rear shocks popping out past the bushings or just getting extremely dirty way to often ….why do we mainly see this on the rears? Because the radiant heat from the exhaust dry them out quickly and they are more prone to dirt and water intrusion because of the location….I personally have had 6 of my rear O-Rings fail. Meaning, they have degraded and allowed dirt and water into the spherical bearing area or have actually popped out past the bushing and in several cases, gotten pinched/cut. I deal a lot with different rubber compounds in my line of work so I know the differences between the different types of rubber materials and there characteristics.

Here is a nice writeup I did on these over on MaverickForums.net

thats because you are washing away the lubricants on all of your pivot points. You need to grease your zeros frequently and you need to check your shocks to see if the bushing are dried out as they will squeak like crazy if they are dried out....which they come that way from the factory.
