    I'm new to the tw200, just got mine about a month ago, a 2015. Theres a squeak while riding and when I sit on it. Not very loud but enough to annoy me. It seems like its coming from somewhere around the top of the shock. Any thoughts?

    Lube the top shock mount (under the seat area).. or possibly eat more greasy food

    (could also be the swing arm pivot or the bottom shock mount but the top one is known for squeaking on mine.)

    JerseyJeeper cracks me up with the "eat more greasy food" comment. I'll just add it's not the eating part which...Oh, I better stop there.

    brewhaha, all of my TW's have had the squeak you speak of. JJ's advice is the best one can do. There is no zerk up top and I just spray mine with whatever chain/wd-40 type lube I have on hand. I think dust gets up in between the shock bolt and shock housing or sleeve, whatever they call it, and grinds to an even finer dust then causing the squeak which drives us batsxxt crazy. I still lube by swing arm often. Probably because the squeak returns and I always think it's the swing arm squeaking first.

    My current TW is a '15 also but it no longer represents anything looking new. It's been beat up on the trail and looks like an '87 now 'cept the lights work. haha

    I like Green Grease the best. It's waterproof and doesn't liquefy in your grease gun when it hasn't been used for a few months. I just hate it when you pick up your grease gun and leaves a trail of liquefied grease across your shop from where it was stored to where you are using it. Green Grease is available at Autozone, but it's about $7 per tube.

    I don't like the liquification either, hate it in fact. I have a special metal drawer just for grease guns just because of that..

    Way too organized, way to much. Are those magnets from something up on top of the chart? I dismantled some computer hard drives recently and they had really strong magnets which somewhat resemble the shape of those on the chart. Just curious.
