There is an irritating rattle which seems to emanate from the front wheel/caliper area but i'm unable to find anything loose. The fender bolts are OK. The rattle is most noticable when crossing a minor join in a smooth pavement at low speed. (perhaps I don't hear it at higher speeds) I'm beginning to suspect something inside the forks. The bike is a K7 exec with about 24,000 miles and has no record of fork maintenance, although other maintenance appears to have been carried out by the PO on a regular basis according to notes handed me. Could there be something loose/worn in the forks that might be rattling? In all other respects the bike rides very well; steers and handles well. Might a change of fork oil be indicated? Comments anyone, please.
