ZX10R 2008 strange clunk from the front end
Happy New Year everyone!!!
I have recently became an owner of 2008 zx10r with only 16000 km on the clock. The bike is in a new condidtion but...
When I test rode it I noticed the clunk in front suspension/front end. It was present even on small road bumps. I checked the steering stem bearing nuts and they were completly loose, so I figured out it was the reason. Unfortunately after bearing adjustmen the annoying clunk is still there.
It doesnt come from the calipers or brake pads because when the brake is engaged there is absolutely no difference in the sound. It also has nothing to do with the forks. When I lock the front wheel againt a wall and squeeze front suspension it works smooth and quiet. The clunk seems to be located somewhere on the left side. I can literally feel it in my left handlebar.
And the last, perhaps important clue: when I ride the bike before engine is fully warmed up, there is absolutely no clunk what so ever. Smooth as a butter. Once it warms up the clunk is back. And for sure its not related to the engine itsself- I tested it on a bumpy downhill with engine off and had the same sounds.
Another thing- I am not able to reproduce this sound when the bike is not moving. It is mostly noticeable at slow speeds.
Please give me your ideas
