Hi everyone,

Was riding around yesterday and i am finally going to ask some questions...

I own a 2010 Black Fury....

When I apply the brakes (either front or rear) I hear this noise, the only real way to describe it.... a small bag of bees, when i release the brakes, the noise stops. There is no problem with braking, and I do not really know If i have the ABS model or not (quick way to check??) As I haven't had the need for any quick stops (knock on wood)

take care
tony

There's another post that happened about a week or two on here with the same question, try the search function up on the row of tabs up there... On the second question, for the quick check, the ABS has 3? lines going up front to the brake, and the non-ABS has only one.

It's funny. On my 750 Ace, I never heard the noise, until it was time to replace the pads. As soon as I had the brake work done, I started hearing the buzzing. I thought something was wrong. When I got the Fury, I had the same noise from day one. I didn't hear it when I was wearing the full-face helmet, but Friday, I wore the half-shell and there it was again. Everyone here says it's normal, so if it bothers you, wear a full-face helmet or get earplugs (or remove the baffles from the exhaust - LOL).

A friend of mine was riding beside me on his bike and he even heard the noise my brakes made.:)

I think it is just the sound of the drilled rotors where the air cools them by passing through the holes. No worries. My X6 does a unique sound like that if I am running the hell out of it and have to slam them. Leaves a shitload of brake dust too lol.

I went in for my first service last week and while there I asked about the brake noise. The service manager said that was normal and the rotor has holes that cause that noise.

You guys think that's weird... I all of a sudden have a "very random" clicking noise coming from my front brake/assembly (can't narrow down where the noise is coming from)... taking it in tomorrow, hopefully we'll be able to zero in on whatever is making the noise, been like this for a couple of weeks now, nothing serious, just weird... (almost 12k on it now for those keeping track or that want to know... I'll keep it posted)

Okay... I took my bike in yesterday and presented the issue to my service guy, he proceeded to ride the bike and immediately heard it and doesn't know what it is either. Attributing this lack of knowledge to it maybe being the first year of a new bike. He took apart the break and greased up the piston or calipers or whatever you want to call them. Clicking is still there and there is no visible signs of wear, coming from my service guy.

Sooo, still don't know what the mystery clicking is. We all thought it was because the brake show was a little loose, but we think it's suppose to be a little loose? He tightened that up as well, still there... Soo, attributing it to the slightly extended rake of the Fury, that is the only thing we can think of, anybody have any ideas.. this just started and I have 11,800 miles on the bike approximately.

The clicking noise is almost like this: Take two screwdrivers and lightly clack them together at the metal ends. This only happens every now and then and also, happens when I back the bike up, press brake, go forward and use the brake to stop, you'll hear it, but then it goes away. It's like it's readjusting itself or something...

No clue on that one RSS. Maybe as more people start racking up the miles, we can get some more answers.

For the rest of you with the brake noise. Has anyone tried jacking the front and spinning the wheel?

Bump & Re-posting my post for after-work bike mechanics to read this, as we may all have this issue sooner or later:
