Just purchased my first street bike, haven't ridden since I was 12, I'm 41 now. Well, just bought a 2008 Vstrom dl650 with abs but it does have around 48k miles on it already and the guy I bought it from gave me a good deal at 3k but I also had to wait for him to take it on a trip and then he flew out of the state after I bought it....hehe! My issue is it seems like the chain makes some noises when I hit the throttle as well as another noice under the tank, not sure if its just the shocks making the noise or the front sprocket area. I'm a newbie not to mention I've never even changed oil in a car before if you get my drift. Also notice scraping noises when I walk the bike and turn the bars to the right, noise is coming from the front tires, possibly the brakes.
