Sorry if this may be a repost, but I'm just curious. I've had my 2008 R6 for like 7 months now, and the past month have noticed a little clicking noise when you roll on the throttle. Sounds like it's coming from the front head of the bike.....like it's behind the headlights.

I thought I recalled another person posting this about a month ago, and that got me really listening to my bike closer. Don't recall what people said, but I'm just wondering if this is normal.

Thanks folks!!

Did you buy the bike new or used? If used there is a good chance the previous owner installed a ratcheting throttle in place of the fly by wire. That's why you hear it when you roll on the throttle.:poke:lmao

Too bad I can't post ghosted smilies.:nono
