Crank noise

Anyone have an idea why my crank makes a click - tends to be in larger rings and is about at the top of the cycle on my right leg (dominate leg). Tried to tighten crank a bit - maybe it helped a bit, not sure.

Swap pedals out first. Could also be seatpost, something your hitting with your feet on rotation. A million things.

I once had a click which turned out to be the pump rubbing on the bottle cage bolts on the down tube!
