Had the exact same thing on mine, adjusted the b tension screw and applied some mastic tape and now it's silent - drove me mad for some time too!

I have a 2018 YT Tues CF Pro with a Fox Float X2. Pretty much since Day 1 I noticed when the the rear suspension compresses at sudden/high speeds (Think hard breaking bumps or small square edge rocks at high speed) the shock (At least pretty sure its the shock) makes a “knocking” noise. It doesn’t occur in big hits (jumps/drops on smooth landings). I had the shock completely rebuilt, still does it. All the bushings/bearings, etc are tight. Any idea what could be causing this? It’s driving me nuts. I can’t recreate it by compressing by hand or even bouncing around on the bike in the yard. I’m not sure if it could be a suspension setup thing (current the rebound and LS compression are about middle of the road) or just a quirk of the shock?

Anyone have any clues?

Are you sure it’s not the rear mech? I’ve been getting similar noises, thought it was the shock but it was the rear mech. Common on the Tues apparently. Keeps happening on mine

Very possible, good idea - Maybe I’ll try keeping an ear on that. Were you able to fix it or do you just live with it?

It’s on my long to do list. My friend, who is a far far better mechanic than me mentioned something about the pivot in the mech needing to be greased. Also on a previous Tues I had, a shop mechanic applied some sort of extra washer to the mech which he reckoned sorted out the problem for good. I should have taken a photo of that fix but didn’t unfortunately.

Your lead was helpfull. I had the same clunking noise on hard hit, I check my rear derailleur and indeed, it was hitting the frame. The paint was gone where he'd hit and at a rest he was 1-2 millimeters from the frame. I did the same adjustment, (b-screw with mastic tape) went for a ride and the noise is now gone. Thanks!tup

That was it! Thank you! I was ready to rip the entire frame apart and start replacing bearings.

I was between the ext or the ohlins and went with the Ö this past month. Coming from a float x2 Its really amazing the improvement a coil shock gives in this bike.

Hi guys, I'm thinking about buying YT Tues but I'm not sure if it's worth to pay for the CF version.

One thing is the obvious weight vs toughness game. I somehow have more trust to aluminum, but has anyone ever seen a cracked CF Tues?

Another main difference is in the air vs coil shock (Float X2 vs Van). Do you think it is a big upgrade on performance?
