clicking or ticking sound

It was warm today so I was riding around, noticed a faint clicking sound. It seemed to stop when I come to a slow roll. It's not the engine, don't hear it idling. I have cross drilled and slotted rotors, rally armor flaps. Could these be causing the sound. I also have a MBRP 3 inch st exhaust, I don't think it is rattling on anything. Any info would be appreciated

Could be the rotors, have you had them long enough to listen with the Window down before?

I haven't had them long at all. Maybe two weeks, I normally don't have the windows down (in my own little world)! I had some trouble with the rear piston retracting, so I opted to go back with the pads that were on the old rotors. That was the only way it would fit down on the new rotors. I had to very easily tap them down with a mallet. Maybe they are in contact with the rotor while it is spinning. You think it will eventually wear down and stop?

Rock in the tire tread? Sometimes that simple of a thing is what it can be~

Could be a rock in the tire or something got stuck in the brakes.

I think it is slowly getting better, the back pads were a little tight at first. The slots and the holes wiping across the pads were the cause of the noise. Only time will tell..
