My bike is ticking like something is maybe shaking and hitting something else but I can’t seem to find out what it is. The ticking noise goes away when I put weight on the bike. Thinking it could possibly be my suspension?
I have an 06 GSXR 1000
Thank you for any help

Do you mean it's actually ticking while idling, but stops as soon as you sit on it? Can't you pinpoint the source of the ticking by ear, even approximately?

Yes, it’s ticking or almost like a small grind while idling and whether I sit on it or pull down on the back seat to add some pressure it stops idling. Seems like it could be suspension?

Get mallet, and give the tire a decent thwap/whack.Shouldn't hurt anything, and you may be able to hunt the sound down somewhat better.

Do you mean that it actually stalls when you sit on it, or did you mean to say "it stops ticking"?
