The bike only has about 7000 miles on it. Is it possible that whatever turns inside the metering assembly got gummed up and is squeaking? I tried turning the tangs inside the assembly by hand and found it harder than I would Imagine.
The only other thing I might suspect is that the metering ssembly is rubbing on the hub itself adn making the noise. In which case I have no idea what to do.
Thanks for your time,
