I just changed to a 15Tooth Front Sprocket on my WR 426 and I am hearing a noise from the CS Sprocket Area. Have any of you had any trouble with this?

make sure your chain is not hitting the case saver. not much room in there.

Also make sure your cs sprocket nut is done up tight (you might need a friend to stand on the rear brake for you) and the lock washer is bent over right too as you can end up with a mess of oil from the seal behind the cs sprocket.

I suspected the chain was slapping the case saver, I just was curious if any one had any kind of catastrophe after going larger on the sprocket.

You have to grind away at the case saver a little bit when you run a 15T :applause:
