At about 400 miles I had to hit the brakes hard(not skidding),When the forks comprressed,I heard a popping sound in the neck.Then when they rebounded back up,I heard a clicking sound from the same place.The noises weren't there before.

I took it in, to have them find it and fix it.Turned out that pt#6,from picture above,and the top tree had to different tapers.They lapped the tapers until thet were the same.Steering was so much better.Before I picked up the bike I asked them to tighten up the nut to 80lbs,like the '04's.They said that is out of spec too tight.So,when I got home I tightened up the nut,with a wrench.No more clunking,popping,or clicking anymore.
