weird noise??

there is like a crackling noise coming from under the front sprocket cover. the chain is very clean and lubed, the slack is properly adjusted and i had a shop check out the chain today (they said the chain was not worn). but i am getting this noise that is making me worry. any suggestions?

Re: weird noise??

Did you pull the sprocket cover off and take a look? It might be the chain plate rattling.

Re: weird noise??

Are you sure you didn't mean "grackling"?!

Sorry, couldn't resist - I hope you figure it out soon...

Re: weird noise??

How worn are your chain and sprockets? Maybe you're getting some binding or slippage?

I agree...take the cover off and look at it. Also you can put your bike on a rear stand and run the wheel backwards with your hand and the bike off in nutural. That will show you more sounds if the chain/sprocket are worn. You may find a *tight spot* on your chain. If so, replace chain, and sprockets to be safest.

Team Honda - well sorta...

Re: weird noise??

well i did find a frozen link. i fully cleaned the chain, and relubed with some new lube i bought that is fully synthetic. it is a little lees noisey. it will have to do for the next week and a half. i leave for myrtle beach in less then 48 hours. so i will change it as soon as i get back.

oh and the front sprocket maybe has 2500 miles on it and the rear sprocket has about 1500 miles on it.
