Front end noise and vibration

Just passing along some info if you're experiencing this like I was. I have a "12" 950 tourer and it developed a roar coming from the front wheel. It has pretty new tires and I though it was coming from there. It also seemed to have a "new" vibration coming through the bars that developed so gradually that I didn't really notice it until one day it just didn't ride as nice as it used to. I read somewhere that sometimes the front caliper I'll drag and cause issues so I tried lubricating it with what I had on hand and nothing changed. Then I found a can of spray silicon lubricant from Walmart for less than $5. Pulled the caliper bolts and sprayed some inside the rubber boots and on the bolts. Put it back together and presto, it rides just like new again. Can't help but smile when I'm riding again! Anyway, if you're noticing these symptoms it might be a $5 fix! Ride safe!
