Just noticed when I took the bike in last night that when it's moving forward slowly and I apply the front break, I can hear a Click as the pad makes contact, and another click when it comes off the rotor. Almost like it grips and lurches forward, and then comes back spring loaded... 05' R6.

I'm always wearing my helmet so I can't really tell if it happens out on the road...

yeh they mostly all make noise like that. your pads "hang" inside of the clipers by pins that go through the calipers. when you brake they move slightly forward in their housing and when you release they move again. You will figure this out the first time you have to change pads. basically all you do is remove the dust shield, pull out a cotter ppin, and pull the main pin that the pads dangle from. then clean and reset your pistons and reinstall the pads. Also if might be a little noise from the disc because it is a semi or full floating disc meaning that it can move back and forth a little.
