everytime I hit a bump I hear a noise from the forks that sound like someone banging a spoon against a pot. Any ideas?

would that be a wooden or metal spoon:) Sorry...... I had a similar problem on my S with the bottom edge of the fork slider just clipping the front mud guard (fender?) I had replaced the front mud guard with a carbon one, the mounting holes where slightly out of position :O

wrap your nuckle against the top of the front fender....

loose brake line, loose mounting bolt.... hell my "bongs" like that if I hit a bump at slow speed

I had asimilar noise i noticed going over any decent bump in the road, just after i got my bike, freaked me out but i tracked it down. It was the back of the guage cluster rubbing on the base of the windscreen. it sounded just like that, a spoon being whacked on the back of a metal pot, probably just a click amplified by the screen or something.
If i manually flexed the screen/top fairing it made the noise. so my solution was a small spray of silicone lubricant, then no more noise:) I hope your problem is as simple as this.

Same Problem

I have the same problem , though normal bumps are ok its just the ripple type bumps where the shock travels up + down in qwik succession , mine sounds more like a spanner/wrench tapping on the top of the triple .....
I also just had my seals done to....
no noise before.....
:confused
