    My Heli-m this year started to make a click noise from the upper limb pocket area , but only at first draw . Tried some lube and even turned it down a half crank just out of curiosity  . Any thoughts ?

    Try hitting the axle  and quick connects (if there re any) with graphite.  per Vince’s tuning guide.

    Yes. Have these checked they have caused noise before

    If you don’t have a press, you can also try turning them back and forth just before you draw and see if the click stops.  Might be a piece of grit in it.
    My grip made a click during the early part of the draw.  I took it off and glued it back on.  Fixed.

    Well graphite was actually my first choice , and no help . Just tried turning it down and tested and didn’t try cranking it back and forth (yet) . OK with the pic , are you holding the cup that the limb bolts mate with out on the face ? Had those sheer off on a draw 3 months after getting it and had them replaced so that was about July of 2012 . No noise till this year . The thing that really has me scratching my head is why does it only do it on my first draw  . If this isn’t a DIY thing (warranty work) think I’ll travel farther to another shop . First repair was done without checking tuning hole after assembly and had to put a twist in the string at home .

    Sounds like and issue that I had with mine but it was more a pop noise only when I first drew the bow back. The fix was to lightly sand/lube with graphite the plastic pad in between the turret and limb. Never had another issue with it again.

    I had the same problem on my Drenalin. It ended up being a small crack  going up the center of the upper limb from the bolt pocket. Only made noise on first pull.

    Well first off thanks for the replies and looked at everything but to no avail . Then by luck really I turned the upper harmonic dampener before drawing and felt an ever so slight fall into place feeling in my bow hand but no noise . So I popped both out and wiped them and the receiving holes out and lubed with graphite . Back to smooth and silent , guess it had a tacky spot on and would pop into place when I first loaded the limbs . {#emotions_dlg.mathews_thumbs_up}
