First topic message reminder :

Just road tested my SW (non ABS) after fitting refurbed caliper, new pads and discs.

I am getting a 'clicking' or 'ticking' noise when the front brake operates. It varies in frequency and volume depending on speed. It's rather like one end of a lollipop stick being put against a rotating 'spoked' wheel. Everything feels fine under braking but this noise is weird.

I should mention one thing. When I fitted the new pads I reused the metal clip-on shims but I also fitted the purpose made plastic shim (which came with the new pad kit), underneath the metal shim on the pad side of the caliper. My thinking in fitting this plastic shim is that, as the pads wear over time, the pistons will be less exposed by 1mm as they move outwards from the bore. I doubt if this is the problem but thought I'd mention it.

My first thought was the new pads 'bedding-in' on a new disc and the new pad surface is slightly catching one of the holes in the disc.?? Dunno...!

Anyhow, there it is. Has anybody experienced this noise and resolved it?

 "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!
