It kind of sounds like a bushing is worn or a nut needs tightening. You may need someone to help you by performing the action that you are doing in the video while you run your hand around the shock.

^+1. Something definitely isn't right. It shouldn't do that. Make it go away.

I'd recommend that you suspend the bike from the center and let the swingarm hang, see if there's excess lateral play and see where that clicking is coming from. The shock top mount is right under where the rear of the tank mounts and that might be the sound you're hearing.

No lateral play, and everything is tight (under the gas tank)
However I see the bearing in the image, have some looseness and I replace it (including bolt and the other parts), but the looseness remains in the same place..... Weird...

Have someone bounce it so it makes noise. Give each pivot point a small squirt of WD40 until it changes or goes away. Then you have found it and address it as needed.
