Squeaky RS J1 Fork

My fork, which has (at most) 300 miles on it, has started squeaking. It seems to be coming from the springs... But I'm not sure how to diagnose this problem / fix it.

You would probably need to partially strip the fork to see what's going on inside and relube as necessary. Sounds like the coil has dried up a bit.

I would recommend taking it to a RS dealer rather than attempt it yourself unless you're very confident.
