Mine clicks as well, usually under hard braking. Also, have any of you experienced the bike popping out of gear? I could have sworn that once or twice, when I was slowing down suddenly, I'd hear a click sound, and it felt like the bike changed gears. I was in 3rd, and when I geared down, only one click to first. Maybe I'm crazy...I usually only hear the clicking under hard braking, when going over a slight bump in the road.

Guys
If you remember I posted a while back[zx6r.com]about my bike
being repaired after an off,Aust$2700, and on the ride home the front calipers fell off. There was a clicking sound everytime I used the brakes cause the bolts were only hand tight ![xx(] so please check all the brake bolts as you dont need to have what happened to me happen to you..

I had that uneasy feeling they might be just hanging there.
Stopped by using the rear. Both calipers just hanging there.[B)] What would have happened if they got caught in the wheel ??

I hear the clicking when I pull away from a stop light. 1 loud click then consecutive clicks but not as loud as the first. Does anyone think that this could be a gear problem? or could it be a chain problem? pleae someone help me cuz Im very concerned. dont have a car. bike only mod of transport. thanks guys.
