what is that clunk sound when I lock my rear

Lets say I'm coming to a stop and get on the rear brake a little to much.

It seems like almost everytime this happens I hear a clunk, kind of like the clunk I hear when I drop it into first gear form N.

Any idea what am I hearing?

Cush drive or poor chain adjustment but I think it's more likely the Cush drive

The bracket that holds the brake pads moves a little bit sum times when you brake hard thats what it sounds like to me.

I had no idea what a cush drive was until now. Thanks. It's dosn't sound like chain noise either. It's supposed to make that sound I take it?

New chain was put on just a few thousand miles ago too.

So, my rear sprocket looks like it's bent just a hair (not a flat plane) as far as I can tell. I see this when the rear is on a stand and I am turning the rear with one hand while cleaning the chain with the brush while looking at the chain on the sprocket. it kind of warbles left and right just a little (a few mm).

I had thought I bent the sprocket a little when I had a get off playing off road.

The axle adjusters should keep the axle from moving even if the nut was loose.

Does it happen if you come to a hard stop with the rear in neutral? More then likely Cush though

Ten bucks says it's the rear wheel locking and making it hop once or twice.

Here's how to fix it...


Stop using the rear brake except in emergencies.

There, see how easy that was?

Maybe it's different on his bike, but I heard the same noise on my gsxr... The rear brake caliper had come loose so I tightened the axle nut.. problem solved, for me anyway

I bet if you bought a Honda it would fix the issue.

Jack the rear up,. put in first gear, move wheel by hand, watch for slack between the sprocket carrier and wheel.. that is cush wear.

If that is good, hold the rear brake pedal and rock the wheel back and forth, looking for slack in the caliper mounts... some have a block/slot on the swingarm, others have a torque arm/link from the front of the swingarm to the caliper.

Much easier to take a couple minutes to check it out, as opposed to asking on the web for peoples opinions... just sayin'
