Default Front suspension noisy bang

My 2002 TC makes a loud knock when the forks are depressed. I'll put on the front brake and push the bike forward to test the shocks when this happens all the time. It also makes this noise while hitting bumps on the road. I just replaced the fork oil, but that didn't make any difference. Any ideas?

Check the handlebar bushing it might need to be tighten , Or its worn and needs to be replace....

I'll have to check for the tree's bearings. But I swear that the sound came from the forks. Stability and steering seem to be ok, but I definitely need to check the steering bearing. Thanks for the help
