Help - squeaking noise coming from front wheel / fork?

At lower speeds (even when I'm not on the brakes), there is a continuous sqeaking noise coming from the front wheel / fork area. When I jump up and down on the bike to compress the front shocks, there is no noise.. so I'm thinking it has something to do with the front wheels.

I'm a total noob to bikes... any advice on where I should start looking?

Try a drop of motor oil on the speedo seal. I put some on both sides of the axel and the noise went away. Hopefully that does the trick for ya, otherwise your axel may need to be re-torqued.

Whoot whoot! Finally! lol j/k

On a side note though, when my front wheel was squeaking it was so close to it's 7.5 service I just decided to let the dealership deal with it.

Result?
They said my Speedo Drive Seal was dried out so they lubed it up and my bike hasn't squeaked since.. Might want to look into that if any of those other fixes don't work.

And no, sorry Kkim, I did not get the valve adjustments on my bike.
