Howdy folks,

I am experiencing a problem with my Fatboy making loud squeaking noises. The noise seems to be coming from the shock absorbers and is loud enough to turn heads. Has anyone had this problem? I installed a White Bros. lowering kit about 4 years ago and it has been working fine until now. The bike has 50,000 miles. Any suggestions?

Welcome! I would take the shocks off and check them, it sounds like either one of the joints is wore out or one or both of the shocks are blown out,

Also make sure the swingarm bearings are good.
Good point. You might could try applying a little graphite to the shock mounting points. I had a recurring squeek on my Rk and it turned out to be the rubber inserts for the pipe hangers at the back of the bike. I got tired of using the WD and bought some new rubber inserts and the problem went away.
