Klik klik sound when breaking hard
« on: January 24, 2021, 12:49:03 pm »
I recently picked up a klik klik sound on my 2015 690 enduro when breaking hard.

I have bleeded the brakes and tried breaking with and without ABS but the noise stays there.

The sound appears to be coming from around the headset... but not 100% sure. Sounds can be misleading

Any suggestions on what this could be?

PS: this started immediately after I loaded and strapped the bike on to a trailer... donít know if something happened there... probably not and nothing I can see

Neck bearings.
I would also definately check the headbearings even just to eliminate that but doubt Mr Sarcastic will know how to properly :sip: :lol8:

also check the front brake rotor for excess play

If the front disc is of the floating disc type. Looks like the outer ring is attached to the inner ring with big rivets. No problem. Feel if you can slightly turn the outer ring. Nothing serious

I agree it probably the floating rivets on the rotor disc that are worn. KTM disc rotors are garbage imo. Change to Moto-Master.

I recently replaced my speedo drive gear on my bike and also had the clicking sound.... Found out I hadn't torqued the pinch-bolts on the rhs fork stantion!  :eek7:

They were only hand tight, and could've caused some interesting moments if they'd loosened completely!

Thanks for the advice guys. I have made the decision to rather take it to KTM in Paarl. I will check the Speedo drive gear tonight, but from what the rest of the consensus tells me it must be the neck bearing. The fellow at KTM also agrees.
