It sounds like the front brake pads are makeing clicking or clunking noise. I can only hear it at low speeds like 25 mph and under, if I apply the brakes it stops. Just put new EBC pads in this spring and had the dealer put on new EBC rotors. Any ideas? :hshot

My fornt brake clicks too. It just clicks once when you're coming coming to a stop from lower speeds. I have original pads and rotors on mine. Just started doing it not too long ago. I'd be interested in hearing what ithers have to say about this.

Guys, I don't have a 7R but my ZX9 has been making the same noise for months. It's quite irritating since I haven't been able to figure it out. I have checked my pads and rotors and they are fine. Glad I'm not the only one with this issue.

mine was clicking and it ended up one of my bolts that holds on the front wheel came loose and snapped my speedo cable...take a quick look to see if your bolts are secure

Can you be a little more specific on which bolt you tightened to fix the problem? My bike does this as well and I'd like to fix it. Thanks

front brakes clicking

check for brake pads not being held down by the chromed plates on the rear of the calipers, you can do this by tapping gently on the inner edge of the front pads from the inside, the plates are supposed to put pressure on the rear of the pads to hold them in place, if not they click/pop once during slow speed brake apply, you should be able to see the plate move as you bump the pads if not theres to much clearence, recently replaced the right hand plate for exactly same condition, problem corrected.
