The only time I've ever heard a clicking is if the ABS is activated. Are you doing a lot of hard, fast stops?

try not stopping as hard and so fast ease into the stops and then get back to us and we'll go from there. plus your brakes will last longer

What ColinS said. Don't ride so close to the vehicle in front of you so yo have more time to stop at a slower rate.

There is nothing wrong with the system. It is functioning properly. If you are activating the ABS frequently, you are stopping too fast and not giveing yourself the proper spacing that you should. The general rule is a minimum of two seconds spacing but three to four is better.

Alright on the way home from work today i stoped much slower and it is still doing it. Its a pretty loud clicking sound and you can feel it in the peddle almost like there is a cable in there. If this helps any in the winter time i dont think my abs was working at all.

That is a problem then. Is the ABS light on the dash on or are you getting any other dash lights?
