Just got to 14hrs on the ski yesterday and while I was driving it back in i noticed the steering making a squeaky noise turning left to right. Anyone had this yet?

Mine kinda makes a creeking sound sometimes, but not enough times for me to worry. I'm going o have my dealer check out everything on it here soon to make sure all is good. Mine have 9 hours on them.

Mine makes a very noticeable c reeking sound. I hear it in the no wake zones. I don't even have to touch the steering. Just move my weight back front left of right.

I'm experiencing the same issue, waiting on some real handlebars to install on this thing

Weird how they all started around the same hours. Didn't seem to effect the steering cause I still had a blast at the lake.

i really hope its not something coming loose, if you're really concerned, then you may want to have it looked at, better to be safe than sorry

Yup. Maybe there was some sort of coating that wore off somewhere that is causing it to squeak now. If I call BRP to ask they will tell me to ask my local technician who will tell me they don't know. From what I heard the Spark was five years in the making. I'm going to guess the last year did not include taking a bunch of them and running them on water for a year to work out the kinks

LOL

I think the part about maybe something wore off is correct. Like you, after last weekends non stop spark fest I need a break this weekend. Will look at the ski next weekend though and see if I can see anything.

not bad at all maybe for some the time will vary or maybe even some people will get lucky and won't have this happen to them.

inspecting it with a flashlight is a good idea, worth doing if you have the time, better knowing than not knowing.

Mine squeaks a lot but I see no concern whatsoever. It's just plastic in contact with it self, figured I'd just have the dealer throw some white lightning in a couple areas next time the lid is off.

Mine squeaked for a while around the 5-8 hour mark, It was the plastic on the steering column(just above the lcd display) rubbing on the plastic below when I put force down on one bar, and up on the other and turn the bars left to right. This has since gone away and am a very happy sparker :D

As of this post I have 11 hours and 20 minutes on the spark and will have over 20 hours in a week... I love this thing!
