Clutch

Guys, I’m super new at this. All of it. I bought a old 1999 Honda rebel a few months ago and I’m making small changes at a time. Right now I noticed my clutch is squeaky when I change gears. I just replaced the oil 2 weeks ago. Not sure if that has anything to do with it. But I’m not sure what could be wrong. It’s a 250 btw.

Where is the squeak coming from? Handlebars, cable, or engine case?

So, I think it’s from the handle bar. How can I be sure?

lubricate your handlebar perch - if the squeak goes away you are sure

WD40 won't harm rubber, so yes, you can use it.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!
