Also, is it normal for alot of clunking/clanging to come from underneath the Eiger when on steep, rough, downhill grades while just creeping along?
Thanks for any info you give.
I just had a clunking noise in mine which turned out to be the front wheel bearings. They were so bad on one side that the ball bearings fell out when I jacked up the front end to investigate. Get the front tires off the ground, grab the top and bottom of the tire, and see if there is a lot of play in the wheel. Or, you can take the tire off and the hub to check the bearings. If there's a lot of play, your bearings are probably badly worn. I've read on here that the OEM bearings weren't designed real well to keep out dirt/mud, which will lead to bearing failure over time. My left side was so bad I pulled out chunks of twisted bearing and this was the same weekend that I first noticed the noise. Good luck.
