I think i know what it is. On the rear swingarm, these is a little groove that the rear brake caliper mount slides through. This groove prevents the caliper from rotating. The groove is located on the inside of the right side of the swingarm. Well for some reason this seemed a little loose on mine as well. I just got a thin piece of metal in there and it seemed to solve the problem. The knocking sound you hear is the caliper mount moving around in there because there is a little play between the groove and mount.

Bungle in the Jungle!!!

What about what you have to say? You never said front or rear brakes.
