Annoying Chain Slap

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.

Oh it's Good to Be Back on a Dirtbike!

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!
