CLICKING SOUND!!??? - August 2, 2007, 08:49 AM

Ok so I took out the R6 yesterday, its an 05 by the way...........and I was teaching my wife to ride. Well when I was traveling down the road I hear a clicking sounds coming from the front of the bike......

I get to the parking lot and even a very very very slow speeds, i hear it..until I apply the brakes and then it goes away. I looked at the rotors and they dont appear to be bent at all but to the naked eye a slight bend might be hard to see.

What i am asking is, does anyone have any ideas of what i need to check to find the problem, and/or what might be the problem.

Final question, I am running Pilot Power race tires on it, whats the PSI i should run them at???

Thanks.................Derek

Can you put it on a stand and roll the wheel? Check the rotor for loose bolts or buttons. Also check your pads and the pin that holds them in. To see if it is bent use a coat hanger wire and make a pointer out of it. Attach it solidly and the rotate the wheel and that should let you know if it is bent.

Put the front on a front stand, spin the wheel, check the rotos make sure they are not warped. Remove the front Fender to be able to see better, ride it without the front fender as well.

Any questions please feel free to call 571 car-nage

Here are some troubleshooting ideas off the top of my head:

1. Put the bike on stands and rotate tire.
If you hear the clicking look at the wheel weights and calipers.
Take calipers off and inspect for rocks and debris. Clean out if needed. Put tape on wheel weights, they have a tendency to come loose.

2. If you clicking is heard look at the tripples to make sure they are clear of debris and torqued to spec.

That's my 2 cents too. My 02 R6 steering head would click from time to time and I had to go and tighten it up.

Yeah, very good to check them periodically...

Usually they will click when you first apply the brakes(front)..

I saw a ripple effect in this thread. First dodge said it then it just went on!

Hey Derek, ask your g/f Johnny! He'll continue the echo effect!

It's not your steering head bearing based on how you are describing it. Your steering head bearing would make that clicking sound when you hit the bakes of slammed it into a turn and not while you were just riding down the road.

Sounds like a brake issue to me. Might be time for some new pads and rotors.
