'06 DL650 Noise after chain/sprocket replacement

Hey guys!

Just replaced front and rear sprockets, and chain, which involved taking rear wheel off.

I got everything buttoned up and chain tightened, but there seems to be a tight spot and some noise coming from the rear end.

I went to take it for a ride, and couldn't even get out of the parking lot before I noticed it.


I will post the video to the noise in the comments, as it won't let me add it here because I am new

I appreciate any suggestions!

Based on the frequency I would be looking in front sprocket area under the cover. kfh000

What kind of link did you use to join the chain together? Is it the rivet stile where you flair the ends with the special tool? Did you make it too tight?

I used the DID connecting link with clip.

I tightened it to about 1.25" of play in the chain.

Do you have either a center stand, swing-arm stand or any means of lifting the rear wheel, so that it can be spun freely? Look for tight spots on the chain, or links that are not moving freely (even on a new chain). Also have a look for sprockets that could possibly be out of round. Something else to check on is perhaps the rear brake. Spinning the wheel will help in diagnosing any strange sounds.

Also check to make sure the brake pads are in the correct position in the caliper.

So I hate to admit it but this was the case. It was really dark last night and I couldn’t see properly. Found one of them not in position.

Thank you all!
