click noise rolling bike in nuetral

Searched and got nothing.

I am hearing a weird click noise when rolling the bike forward in neutral. Noticed it today while rolling the bike into the garage. Really not sure I noticed it before, which makes me feel stupid for not being 100% this is new.

Its a different sound than the chain rolling along.

Put bike on center stand roll tire forward I hear the sound, roll tire backward I hear the sound.

Sound like its coming from around the front sprocket area.

Turned bike on while on center stand and placed in gear. No sound while running in gear on center stand. Just normal sound of chain buzzing along.

Not sure what to think here...

Ideas?

Thanks
Cody

not much. i have about 4k on the bike total.

Chain spacers look good as far as being the same on both sides.

I was running around in some dirt and sand yesterday and haven't rinsed the bike off. Going to take of front sprocket cover see if anything is in there.

But I didn't not hear the noise rolling it out of the garage this morning.

I have a feeling you already covered this, but is your chain tightened to spec?

When the bike is on the center stand, the rear wheel does not have the bike's weight on it, and the chain slack will be more than the norm. I would assume that there is some clatter when you roll the wheel while on the stand and in neutral.

I'm leaning towards a too tight chain and worn front sprocket. Did you check your chain free play on the sidestand? Also, check that your front sprocket nut is torqued down. And measure the pin to pin stretch per the manual for the bike, too see if the chain is stretched and needs replacing.

Crap balls....

Well I'm gonna say its a too tight chain. Swapped tires last week and tightened chain while on the center stand...

When I tightened it I noticed it was farther/tighter than when taking tire off. (I had marked it)

Thanks guys.

I had just went to take a video and its doing it a lot less now than when I got home. I will adjust the chain off the center stand.

yup would suggest cleaning the chain and tightening it back to specks. When I ride it in muddy and dusty terrain it often makes weird noises afterwards;

Rear bearings? You're sure the noise isn't coming from the rear hub? Don't want to freak you out but last time I heard a clicking noise I ended up installing my 3rd set of bearings.....

No it definitely sounds like its coming from around the front sprocket area-ish...
I will be re-adjusting it once my boy is asleep and I can get to the garage.

when I swapped tires and had the rear off I stuck my finger in there to turn the bearings. had no idea what I was looking for but figured if it was messed up I would have known. Seemed to turn smoothly no noise.
