    i went off this huge stair gap and after i landed i pressed down on the fork and it started to squeek and now when i press down on it it akes s squeaky / whistle sound. its a 2004 z150 on the norco six.

    You will most likely get a better answer if you post in the Bicycle Mechanics forum.

    no he wont. here's the answer.

    you just bought the bike and the fork is breaking in still. its fine. it'll go away. unless it starts clunking or creaking or hozing out oil, you dont much have to worry about a z150

    I agree with burly. Marz's make a 'squishy' sound, expecially the longer travel ones. Creaking (like a door) oil oil spewing...then you have to worry

    Do you have the Z150 FR or the FR SL model? If you have the SL try and slow down the rebound and see if that helps. If it does then there is a good chance the noise is coming from a seal rubbing.
