Does it happen with ignition off while the bike is stationary?
Can you produce the clunk by holding the front brake and compressing the forks up and down?
Clunks with the ignition on or off. The tech narrowed it down to the left side. Seemed like an internal machining issue.

He could grab the fork shake it and feel the play. The new fork has the same problem.

It clunks during compression it seems to me.

Yes can reproduce the clunk rolling the bike and hitting the front brake.

Source?


On a side note my cold start issue with full exhaust is now gone since the adaptive reset.

My quickshifter is back to buttery smooth and the engine does not vibrate as much after the ECU update and adaptive reset.

@Jarmo Perttula That is horrendous. I am yet to see it here.

The fork issue is really sad, I mentioned way back when in another new 2020 thread my concerns with Marzocchi as the new fork supplier. I’ve searched the net today to find an old cycle world article from 2015 regarding Marzocchi being sold off and having issues with staying afloat due to lack of a “big account”..

Once again I hope this gets fixed as BMW can save Marzocchi if Marzocchi is willing to save themselves with quality product.

Wow, I thought I was imagining things. I figured it was something to do with the forks but I didn't figure other people were having the same clunking issue. Good grief....

I sold GSX R750 mainly due to a front fork clunk, the R1000 I currently own is clunk free, however if I slightly hear a fork clunk upon delivery of my S1000RR I'll be asking for my deposit back...

I can totally feel it. From 0-35mph especially anytime I go over small bumps (there are many bumps and cracks in the roads around CA these days). The dealer showed me some pics of my right fork leg disassembled and a video and they are confident they narrowed it to a floating shim or washer in the right fork innards. It is situated on a rod and has some minor play between a spring and tube and it can freely float up and down in the oil as the tube moves up and down. They are unlike the previous K46 so I cant find a diagram anywhere to show it. They are still working (fighting) with BMWNA to address this as of today. Pretty happy with the dealer as they are really taking this serious. Problem seems to be with BMWNA. I may have to change my tactics.

^^ I'm sure BMW have already sent clunking forks back to Marzocchi for their engineers to address. Word is getting around about this issue.
