yes i need help, when i adjusted the chain which was very loose, some grinding noises appeared, at first i thought its the wheel bearings and I damaged them by tightening the big bolt too that holds the rear wheel to much, but the noises are loud and come from the front, right where the drive sprocket is, its like it grinds on and off when its turning, it grinds loud so Im ashamed to ride it, can somebody help me please, i dont know what i did to my baby:crying:

Zero937- the chain is stock, plus i already did a little troubleshooting and took the tire off and checked the chain and pulled it to make the drive sprocket turn, but im not able to turn it fast enough for the noise to appear.

spina220- yes i believe i made it too tight for that first ride after adjusting it, then i loosen it some, but the noise still remained.

Sideshow bob-(funny name) yes its worse when i accelerate no matter if its hard or not.

thanks for replying, i have done some research here in fireblades.com and some other people have had this same problem or similar, not on the RC but other bikes, but in their threads there is no solution to the problem, they just stop replying after they say there going to do something,, sucks!!!,,, anyways if you guys or anyone have an idea please let me know, :confused:

First thing i would do is take sprocket cover off, remove chain, then front procket and see if there is a build up of crud befind socket, if there is clean it off, if not you might feel some side to side play on sprocket, if so you probery shaged drive shaft bearing. Future referance better to have a bit to much play in chain than not enough, you want about a inch of play in chain when on stand, but check all round as you will get tight spots, if you is heavy set or ride two up then best to double check when on bike. Hope its just crud though. good luck with that......:thumb:
