Default knuk sound when braking

hi again

lately i have this knuk sound coming somewhere infront of me when using the front brakes,
the harder i brake the louder knuk i get when diving and enother one or more when releasing the front brakes.

pushing down the forks while standing gives no sound but pushing the forks down and puling the brakes give me again this ugly knuks

my vee is 2006 with 51k

mmmm, any ideas?

I get that sound after I've stopped on a hill or used the brakes while backing up.

I think it's the pads reseating in the holders while going forward.

I could be wrong as to the cause, but that's what I believe it is.





Some one get me the bong, eh?

Try having someone else on the bike while you listen for the noise. Determine if is indeed the brakes, or if it is the forks, or a loose steering head bearing

Maybe the last brake job was done by the three stooges?

Do you get the noise when hitting a bump without the brakes applied.

I think that it's a Canadian sound, even Janice heard it...

Janice,

In your case I'm sure it's your Bong moving around in your topcase.
