This is a post from ironhorse rider posted in the ironhorse section but I think you guys would better answere that for him.
i own a 2003 warrior disk. i just replaced my pedals because my stock ones were shot. There brand new and they make the same crack noiseas a shot pedal is this bad. Also its not the crank i already cheches that
I still think it might be the crank becuase it is over a year old but what do you guys think?

Either the cranks or the BB. Could possibly be runied threads in the crank arm where the pedals goes into, I had this problem and there was enough space between the threads to make a popping sound. Just got a new crank arm and all was fixed.

Had something similar on my friend's bike. Turned out to be the BB threads weren't greased at all. The LBS never even put 1 dab of it there, so after putting a generous amount of grease on the threads the noise was gone.

Start by check if everything is tight.

Take off the pedals and try to disassemble them. Reassemble tight with fresh grease.

Time to go SPD. IMO
