2001 748. I noticed yesterday, when the bike is off, any time I roll it I hear a clicking sound that comes from the front sprocket area. Do I just need a chain lube or could this be a potential issue?

Also, just out of curiosity, does anyone know why, when I turn the wheel full lock to the right and back up (engine off), there's a clicking sound that sounds like it's coming from the front wheel? Doesn't do it when I turn the wheel left or when the wheel is straight. This doesn't concern me as much as the noise above, but I am curious...

Do you have a steering damper? Could be the damper, or it could be head bearings, then again, it could also be something completely innocent like the brake line moving inside the grommet it rides in at the rear of the front fender.

Check your chain tension as well. Loose chain can make a bit of noise.

Doesn't that bike have a speedometer cable that rotates inside a cable sheath? Could it be the speedo gears turning?

I think your noise up front are the fully floating disk buttons. I would just take a good long look at the front sprocket....cover off, have some one spin the bike in neutral and get a good listen.
