GSXR1100 Suspension Noise

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by BJR, Dec 16, 2005.

  1. Wondering if anyone can shed some light on a strange noise in the rear suspension of my GSXR1100.
    It knocks on rebound, I have checked all linkages and mounts,none of them have any movement at all??
    Has anyone come across this before?

  2. Over tight chain maybe or else the shock is cactus.
  3. Chain definately not over tight, shock still works very well. Bike has only 32000kms......hmm strange one.
  4. If you havent already, check every nut and bolt by actually using spanners. You might think all is tight but you might be surprised. Other than that the shock could have failed, dont worry about what k's you have done, things can fail at very low k's or just go forever.
