Bought this bike used at 25k miles and im loving it coming from a 250. the front sprocket generates an odd noise though that I dont hear on my friends' or any of my dad's bikes. more info on the noise and what conditions cause it are in the description of the video. I have cleaned and lubed the chain and sprockets multiple times to no avail. any insight is appreciated.
Noise coming from front sprocket, disappears and rolls quietly when clutch is pulled at any speed, or throttle is closed without clutch pulled.noise immediatly starts up when giving any throttle, ramps up as you climb gears. Bike rides great and this seems to have no effect on performance or power just annoying. I've heard aftermarket sprockets do not have a rubber coating like oem and that produces a noise. I bought the bike used at 25k miles and PO said he just swapped out oem for aftermarket so they are not suzuki sprockets, do you guys think this is what that noise is? Or do I need a new chain + sprockets?
