my bike has developed a "mouse squeak" from the front tire. got the front tire up off the ground and spun it and it appears the squeak does not come from the bearings. so ... i am left thinking it is the spedo mechanism that needs some grease.
i have searched on here and found many many posts about this issue. what is missing (or that i have not stumbled across) is some sort of guideance re. how to go about taking the spedo gear apart to apply the grease. is there a schematic available some where for this part? i am worried about pulling it off, opening it up, and having spring loaded little bits & pcs raining down on me. does anyone know if there is a link available which deals with the process of greasing the mechanism inside the spedo unit?
as is probably obvious from this (and my other posts) this is all new to me. is this something i should really take into the shop and have them do rather than messing it up myself?
advice and insight appreciated.
