My squeak was the upper eye on the rear shock. Kind of a pain to get out just for lube, but if you grease it up with good grease, it will stay quiet for a while.

Yea, I couldn't even get through one ride before it would start squeaking again with WD or any other spray.

Mines coming from the same area. Guess I'll tear it down. Is there a grease cert on it? Yes, I'm that lazy that I posted this on here, instead of walking to the garage. (just so others can know!!)

Get a hand full of grease zerks from the hardware. a drill and tap made for there size. put zerks where needed. that way you only need to take them apart once,...after that its easy to lube. The inner sides of the swing arm (by the motor, since there is a small void on each side) are especially beneficial. Just make sure you have good clearnce when it moves.
