Hit a hard bump, squak/clinking now.
Not sure whats going on. But with my passenger yesterday we hit a pretty large pot hole that was unavoidable. Pretty sure we bottomed out. Now on various "sharp" jarring bumps I can hear a metal on metal sound...at first I thought it was bottoming out. Then it happened on smaller bumps.
First thought, damage to the shock, but when parked I was bouncing up and down and couldn't recreate it and it still rides and feels normal. Really nice and comfortable.
Second thought, almost sounds like it is coming from the right side, guy riding beside me could hear it. Not sure if possible the stock exhaust is flexing or loosened some how (has been swapped out and reinstalled before I owned it. Again I grabbed ahold of it and tried to shake or jar it. and it seems solid. If you look where the mufflers slide into the pipes they are slightly crooked, but everything feels solid.
Thought? I am going to try checking/adjusting the sag and see how everything is lining up to see if we are too heavy (combined about 400lbs).
New exhaust should arrive in a few days and I will tear into that to see if anything bracket wise is loose.
