    hello, I have a noise in the front wheel (or fork) of my fllht 1992, something like a "gnek-gnek-gnek" when going through a bumpy road.
    anybody have some idea of where come that noise?
    and the remedy...

    Can you hear the noise if you hold the front brake and bounce the front end? You might check the front wheel bearings, look for something loose inside the fairing, I would also grease the neck bearings and check the fall away and smoothness on the front end. Sometimes the inner & outer fairing can make a noise rubbing each other on a bumpy roads if their a little loose, also check that the slider covers are not rubing the fork tubes when you hit bumps. Happy hunting
