ALL FIXED NOW
In my previous reply, I mentioned that i couldn't pin point the noise. So after work, I thought what the heck, what else could go wrong i mind as well take the fairings off and have a quick look...luckily i didn't break anything this time (first time removing fairings on any bike)
Although taking off the right mid was scary, i did it without any screw ups.
At first i thought it was the main axel that holds the fork, because that is where i "thought" the sound was coming from and i thought f%^k, something must be cracked. Then by chance, i put my hand on the radiator and turned the handle bars and bam, i found the issue. it was the clutch cable rubbing against the radiator. wow was i ever releived.
i guess sometimes the brain hears what it sees rather than really where it is coming from, i really thought the sound was from the main axle nut, but luck would have it was only the clutch cable. a simple adjustment of the free play on the clutch handle solved all my squeaky issues.
Thanks for all your help guys, and some wicked posts on how to remove the mid fairings.
I would be so lost without this site!
