Annoying Chain Slap

4 posts in this topic

What is causing the annoying chain slap on my bike? I have adjusted and lubed the chain properly. Is it just me or have you guys had similar experiences?

(2001 WR426)

I had what I thought was chain-slap so I decided to loosen the chain. Now there is not nearly as much noise coming from that area. Now i have to lube the front wheel to get rid of that annoying squeal.

Thanx, I'll loosen it up tomorrow and see what happens.

Why not increase the annoyance factor and install a TM Designworks Chain Buffer and Chain Guide? Then you will know TRUE CHAIN SLAP grin.gif!
