Check your rotor out closely. Look for a crack in it that runs from one hole to another. The holes are for cooling purposes but if the rotor gets too hot for one reason or another, it'll crack. When it heats up from the braking action, metal one either side of the crack becomes uneven and causes a "click, click, click" noise.
If you don't find any crack, first off that's good, But, then you need a dial indicator to check for warpage of the rotor. Mount the dial indicator on the fork slider and the spin the wheel with the dial indicator on it. Anymore thans a few thousandths could cause the rattle by moving the caliper side to side.
The rotor caliper is mounted so that it will move side to side and the pads are mounted inside so that they "float". They have anti-rattle clips and springs to keep the noise down. Make sure all these parts are in there and positioned properly.

Have the computer re-mapped. I have the same bike with a stage 1 upgrade. The race tuner was bad. Dealer removed it, remapped the stock computer with the stage 1 settings and all has been well since.

My first inclination is tell you that it is probably jetted too lean. The low speed jet should be a number 29.5 or a 31. The main should be a 72 in most cases. Your bike may require a step up or down from these jet sizes as I don't know what kind of exhaust or other modifications your bike has nor the location (altitude) you are at. This is a common complaint with the Super "B". The biggest reason for this is that the Super "B" carb did not have an accelerator pump on it. This means that when you rev the engine, you create a momentary lean condition before the vacuum signal can start to draw fuel from the main jet circuit. Go to S&S's site and download the installation instruction for your Super "B" carb, file 51-1006. Even though they have stopped production of this model, the instructions are still posted online. The Super "E" carburetor was designed to replace the "B" model. The "E" is called the "Shorty" because it is much shorter and does not stick out as far as the "B" model. It also has an accelerator pump that smoothes out the transisition between the idle-low speed circuit and the high speed circuit. Also, check your plugs, plug wires (especially the spark plug boots and the end that plugs into the coil) and the points. You may be getting a misfire or a weak spark.
Good Luck & Ride Safe
