Tracer 900 left front shock is knocking

Recommended Posts

Hi , i have noticed a knocking sound from the left shock , my internals are completely Andreanni not stock ones..

No leaking issue all is dry.

I can definitely hear it over small bumps on the road.

I'm going to disassemble it , what should i check ? Or in other words what could be defective ?.

Thanks

@ilanr1Are you sure the knocking sound is not coming from the floating brake rotors?

Did the issue start when you installed the cartridges or have you had the cartridges installed for awhile?

No it just started lately. I have the Andreanni cartridges for 3 years with no issues.

Maybe it's the inner bushing ?

That is what I was going to suggest.  Keep us posted with your findings.  Good luck. 👍

Definitely a possibility. I just replaced mine when I found a small patch of brass showing through the Teflon material. 
 

the other possibility I’ve read about is the springs and spacers knocking into the outer fork tube. Someone solved that issue with some Orings.
