Heavy CLICK/THUD when braking, 06 10r...

Only when i brake hard, it feels like the whole front end is loose (upper fairing, headlights) I dont believe my ram air tube is broke (my 636 broke and had to be replaced) but I feel like something is very NOT connected to the bike. Anybody else have this problem?

thanks

I think I've had that happen on my 05. Not sure what it is either though?!?!

Double check Brake Carrier bolts? Fork tube clamp bolts all the way around?

Search, steering head nut. The large nut under the top triple tree.

Yes research adjusting the head bearings and i suspect you'll find the culprit.

THANKS

sounds like ill have to do some research.. it actually sounds like the upper is moving around and it does tend to flex alot when going over bigger bumps... I hate the design that kawi uses for the ram air tube, but that is my only complaint thus far in the 4 kawi's that i have owned. Thanks again


Next question, anybody here have LSL clip ons? is there a way to adjust them so they dont hit the upper, no matter what i do they seem to rub a bit..

Mine does something similar on my 05 and I just installed an Ohlins Damper and torqued it correctly.

I'm thinking it's under the triple clamp?
