Default Noise and catch in front suspension

Not quite sure how to ask this, but does your bike have a "catch" in the front shocks when being compressed? For example sitting on the bike with engine off, brake engaged and a firm push down on the bars to compress front end, there is a "catch" and even audible sound made vs a smooth even compression of the shocks with no notchy feeling or sound. I can press down on the bars on my ZX-14 and it's just smooth firm compression, no audible or notchy feeling. Do others have this with their S1000's?

Make sure your triple tree nut is not loose
