    I hear the same thing on my driver side, like when i hit potholes. Can't figure it out either. Drives me nuts. Best i can figure is it's the crossover hitting the stop on the rear shock.

    Thanks, I am going to give Honda a call to see if they have any ideas or thoughts on this noise its annoying and embarrassing when taking a friend for a ride to show off my Honda. I will let you know what I hear from them. Maybe they will be real nice after all my first Honda was a new trail 50.

    Is it on sharp edge bumps? Sound like a hammer tapping the frame? If so check the nitrogen in your shocks.

    My GM's R model has a noise that comes and goes, we seem to have narrowed it down to looseness in the radius rod bushings.
