I cannot find this for the life of me. It makes a very odd click when i just sit on the bike. Sometimes i barely move it or lean it as im sitting there and it clicks and taps makes tons of noise. Could this be the rear strut or something in the swingarm?

Hi and welcome.

I am wondering, in the absence of much detail, if it might be the shock absorber mount - the triangle piece beneath the shock with three bolts that might be cracked/broken?

When was the last time you had the rear suspension linkage apart to clean and grease it? Could be it's starting to seize up.

I have a similar "clicking" sound on my track 99 900RR. I rebuilt the forks, triple clamp, front wheel, everything. So I know everything is right as far as assembly, but I swear the front right fork cartridge is banging around. I haven't taken it apart because it has no effect on the handling, sitting, or anything that I've found over 3 track days. I'll take them apart at some point and see, but for now with no other result other than the noise (that comes and goes), I'll just run it.
