The pad noise is pretty normal for any disc brake. Even when you release the brake lever the hydraulics keep very slight pressure on the pads and they basically remain in contact with the rotors. This is how the self adjust otherwise as they wear there would be a gap between the pad and rotor making things a tad squirrely when you go to brake. The pads are metallic rubbing against the steel rotor, nothing out of the ordinary. As far as the clicking goes, not sure what to tell you. My '08 Custom doesn't make any clicking sounds when I roll it. Does it hapen with the clutch in or out, are you in nuetral? Where's it coming from, transmission perhaps? Wheel bearings? How many miles on the bike?
