So, both of my skis have annoying squeaky handlebars when making turns on the ski.

Since both my skis have it, I figure others must have this issue as well. A simple splash of water onto the bars gets rid of the squeak temporarily, but it is not a permanent fix.

I am wondering if any of you are experiencing this annoying squeak, and if so, did anyone find a remedy to fix it?

I figure some grease or lube can be added, but I wanted to get others' input first.

Just take the nose/front handle bar piece off (one screw & snaps off) and spray on some White Lithium Lube/Grease. It works like a charm and last a long time. Be sure to squirt the upper & lower pieces of the shaft and around back where the metal pieces is located. No more squeaks. :)
perfect! thank you

I was out riding today and when the spark was dry there was no squeak but when I did a 180 and water came up and got it wet then it started to squeak. I'm thinking I should lube mine now and probably will.

Put the grease on ALL moving parts that you see move in this area (picture 2).....also look behind this plastic shaft as you turn the handlebars all the way to one side and you'll see a metal plate piece in the rear...put some grease on that metal plate...don't forget to turn the handlebars all the way to the other side so you can get the other side of that metal plate as well....I sprayed all these moving parts on mine real good...it stopped my squeaking 100%...hasn't squeaked in a month now....so far.

That grease will work fine, but....it's a paste...gonna be hard to apply to these areas....you need a Spray Can of the grease....that's what I have, as it'll reach the back areas as well as help shoot the grease into the small crevasses of the steering column and work deeper into the center of the column.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has been dealing with the squeaky handlebars - it's been driving me crazy! I actually had a complete engine failure this past weekend (I received the dreaded "Limp home" message) and told them while it's in the shop, to do something about the handlebar squeak!

Usually 'complete engine failure' implies catastrophic damage - meaning you wouldn't have been able to limp home.
