Ultegra crankset - clicking

If anyone has experienced clicking from the chainwheel side of the crankset of Ultegra and has found a solution I would like to know. The clicking occurs when putting pressure (mostly uphills) on the right crank arm.

thanks for any constructive advice

It could be a number of different things. The following article addresses a few...

For octalink cranks I always loctite the spines on the BB and then tighten em up good with loctite on teh crank bolts..
Never heard a peep out of them... and removing them isnt a problem.

I never use anything but grease and they never click. Could also be lots of other things too.

After checking the crank fixing bolts on your BB, I would next check the chainring bolts, then the pedal bearings.

It can be all of the regular things mentioned above. Or the crazy things like, your shoe hitting the front deraileur cable end. Or a shoelace (if you have them) hitting the frame. Or your heel, if you have sasquatch feet like me, hitting the rear brake cable end.
