My 02 R1 now has 1650 miles on it, and all of a sudden it makes a weird noise from the fork just below the handlebars. It happens when you brake hard, or I can do it just braking and pressing the front end down sitting still. It sounds like a squeeking, rubbing noise, almost grinding, with a little bit of a pop to it. It sounds like something is loose. I think I will take it to my dealer and let them look into it. If anybody else has had this problem though I would appreciate a response.
