The BB can't make noise when you're coasting, but the freewheel mechanism could.
If the bike has quite a few miles on it, have you ever removed the crank to service the bearings, like the instructions tell you too?
Most of the complaints I've read about the UT crank have to do with improper installation of the cups. It seems that people don't bother to check that the BB faces are square to the threads and the BB width is 67.2-68.8mm wide. If the cups are installed with loctite 222 and not tightened adequately, problems are likely to occur. Campy forgot to include the removal of the factory applied thread locker if loctite is used. Having both materials on the cups won't work correctly. I guess they expect people to read the loctite instructions that say the threads must be clean, dry and free of foreign material before applying it.
