 "The new EBC pad hole shows (at it's widest part) as 7.5mm. The OEM pad hole shows (at it's widest part) as 7mm. Still a 0.5mm difference. So we're not far off in our measurements.

Could this be the cause of the clicking noise as Tim suggested?" end qoute.


 I'm going to say "tentatively yes", that additional .5mm/.020in, is significant IMO, even if the retaining pin was at new dimension of 5.95mm/.235in.(I measured area not subject wear). 
The EBC pad would have 1.55mm/.061in. of clearance/play(7.5mm - 5.95 = 1.55mm) when installed new ??, My used/worn pads/pin have a clearance/play 1.08mm/.043in. at the most wear point, where new oem parts would be aprox. 1mm/.040in. IOW oem is tighter and very durable  Clicking Noise from Front Brake - Page 2 1f60e  Clicking Noise from Front Brake - Page 2 1f4aa IAC the takeaway for me on this topic is, stick to oem brakes and related parts they are good quality  Clicking Noise from Front Brake - Page 2 1f44d

Agreed. Stick to OEM parts.

As I said before, I didn't like the look of the EBC pads after just 200 miles, they looked as though they were chewing at the discs in order to do their job, despite the guy from EBC telling me that that the wear on both the pads and the discs looked normal Neutral Nevertheless, I'll stick with my EBC discs for now but at the slightest sign of trouble I'll be fitting OEM discs.

Anybody reading all this can learn a lot about the way their SW behaves.

Ride it then. Sometimes the smallest things are the hardest to find. 1/2 MM pad slop and worn pins lets those pads move around. Happy you solved it.

So, I just thought I'd put this thing to bed for future reference.

After about 200 miles on my new brake parts, the clicking noise has returned.

In summary, the only non-OEM parts are the discs, they're EBC, surely they are to blame?

I've read that this phenomenum exists on factory new bikes, I'm going to ignore it. The brakes work very well. At least I have a spare set of EBC pads which, if I ever need to fit them, may click to their heart's content. That's provided that I don't have to replace the discs for OEM ones in the meantime. Yikes!
