Question KDX 200 squeaky sound

So my 85 kawasaki KDX has some squeakyinoises occurring when I ride at low gear( as much as my hearing allows above engine noise) Thought it had something to do with mud and dirt, not the reason after the mud and dirt washed off the bike. Where is this coming from? What can I do to lessen this horrid silly sound?

Where is the sound coming from?

Could possibly be the rear suspension linkages/ bushings anytime you hit a bump. A bike that old might squeak. I'd venture to suggest spraying a little WD-40 in connecting points around the suspension. Just keep it away from the brakes when applying.

Sounds like rear suspension bushing may be dry. Good advice thanks everyone
