    Been trying to find source of noise from rear of my 2011 wide glide. Sounds like a cricket. Very annoying while riding. Found the black metal trim making the noise where the top of the shocks connect. I removed the seat and sprayed area with a dry lubricant. Problem solved. Cricket dead.

    Good deal...weird noises are definitely annoying. Mine was in the rear pipe mount...there's a rubber block where the pipes bolt to bracket(s) and it has a tendency to chirp while riding. Little lube & gone...
