clicking noise when breaking 929 blade

Hello hope someone can help
I have resently noticed a click coming from the
Bars just as you come too a stop. Only happens when
I break hard and there is a lot of weight on the front
.it almost feels like the bars move but not if you know
What I mean.
I just upped the front And rear pre load and this started
But I can't see why that would cause this. I am new to big bikes and
Am brakeing harder and later with every ride witch may be why I
Only just noticed it
Any ideas ?

Re: clicking noise when breaking 929 blade

Bearings might be getting loose/worn. Sit on your bike hold the front break and rock back and forth hard. If you feel play in the neck(bars moving forward and back) then the bearings are probably worn.

May be the rotors. You have floaters and sometimes they move. Also check and make sure that the bolts for the rotors and axle are good and snug.

haha, sorry but this is a little funny.

Every bike does this. This is normal. It's when you are in gear, squeeze the clutch, and do an "emergency stop". Put your bike in neutral and try again, it won't happen. I don't know the exact reason, but I guess it comes from the clutch.

Re: clicking noise when breaking 929 blade

Check the Rotor Buttons and see if they are loose. Reach down and grab the rotor with your hand and try to move from side to side if they move and you didn't install full floating rotors (aftermarket) your rotors need to be replaced. Also check the Head set barrings sometimes they need to be tightened and re-packed

Did you even do what I told you to try? If it was your head bearings, then you would feel a bump through handlebars when you apply the front brakes, not a clicking sound. But to check your head bearings, stand in front of your bike and straddle the front wheel. Grab the handlebars, and while holding the brake, pull the bike forward and backward. If it pops, then your bearings are shot(or loose).

But once you try to duplicate that clicking sound with your bike in neutral, you might be surprised.

Ok..I missed that part. Now check the head bearings, if you can understand my instructions. It's also possible if they just started to go bad, tightening the nut up top will help some. But you're just buying a little more time by doing that.

Re: clicking noise when breaking 929 blade

No worries . Rite did what you said can't feel any movement but there is a kind of poping sound when I did it and also as the forks compress and rebound ?

Re: clicking noise when breaking 929 blade

You won't feel any movement, because the bearing might only be moving a few tenths of a milimeter. But you WILL feel the popping... The fork movement you can ignore. But it sounds like those bearings are shot.

Not sure what you're asking... Use OE honda bearings. But it shouldn't be to hard if you do your own repairs and maintenence. You either need a certain type front stand, or suspend the front of the bike from a roof while on a rear stand. And you need a torque wrench for the tripple clamp nut. Other then that its pretty straight forward.
