    2017 Rxp-x 300 Handle Bar Squeak

    Currently own a 2017 rxpx with a total of 35 hours. Around the 10 hour mark I noticed the handlebars starting to squeak while turning. Does anyone know if there is a somewhere I can spray grease to get rid of this squeak, already tried spraying a little around the base of the handlebars from the outside of the ski which did absolutely nothing. Does not affect function, but sure does annoy the hell out of me while riding.

    I have one hour on mine and it squeeks big time. Please tell me where to lube it. On my XPL, it was simple to lube the push pull rod.

    It is plastic to plastic and has very little to no white grease.

    I splash some water on the bars before I ride and it goes away for the day. Seems to come from the plastics rubbing.

    I greased mine over the winter. Only effect way to do it is to pull the steering column. There are a couple plastic bushings that are supposed to have white grease on them. The grease on mine was reduced to a dry powder.

    I lubed everything up with a waterproof grease and its like butter now. Although I'll say that after only 10 hrs its starting to stiffen up again. Whole job only took 1-2 hours though.
