I did. Not anymore. Fishing reel oil. Thank me later. Lol

Ps... I suppose bike chain oil with a bit of Teflon mixed in would work too. But I had fishing reel oil on me.. so I went with that.

Where was yours squeaking, hinges, latches, seals? And which position was it squeaking in. I have had my softie for about 6 weeks and haven't had any squeaking issues.

Normal closed. I lubed all my joints where it folds and it's quiet as a mouse now... Been thru a lot of rain tho... Maybe that helped the squeak. You can hear it pretty good in my last video.

My soft top is pretty squeaky and my ride has a lot of rattles. I have to take it back to the dealer for them to listen. Once I do that and hit 1k miles I'm going to post something.

I also have a few rattles. Haven't had a chance to look carefully to find exactly what is making the noise yet. I haven't heard any squeaking.
