squeaking front?

Everything has been going fine just did an oil change and took off for a ride. When I'm going anywhere over 20 mph I hear a squeaking noise. When I turn right it gets louder turn left quieter hit the front brakes no change in noise. Pads are good hub has no slack or play and spinning hub by hand with tire off makes no noise. Easy to tell it's coming from the right side not many parts to check I can see. No oil from the change got on anything. Any help would be appreciated thanks

grimreefer,
My heat shield on the exhaust pipe was loose and it sounded somewhat like that.

1st off welcome to the club

Hard to say, sounds like a wheel bearing, even though you eliminated it. It wouldn't hurt to lube all the a-arm bearings. They are easier to lube than replace. I think it's common for the Trx700 to squeak. Since Honda left out the grease fittings.

Are the a arm bearings the ball joints? How do u lube them since there sealed with no grease pionts? And I guess I'll throw some new bearings in since there pretty cheap and see if that solves it.

No not the ball joints. Were are you finding them cheap? There like $40 per arm and the Trx700 has 8 arms. http://www.ebay.com/itm/All-Balls-LO...226bde&vxp=mtr


To grease you just take apart the arm's and pack with grease. The tie-rods and ball joints you can grease with one of these,

I was going to try wheel bearings first since the noise is more speed related than bumps. Sounds like squeaky brakes on a car

The fact that you said the brakes were good and the sound was more when turning one way. Sounded to me like a wheel bearing. But like i said hard to diagnose a noise from here....
