    Stick with a 530 for longevity. The DID X ring is about the best chain..

    The FZ stock front sprocket has a "sleeve"(best I can describe) that keeps the noise from the chain to a minimum.

    I personally stuck with Yamaha OEM sprockets and the DID X ring chain..

    Maybe adjusted it twice (so far in 2 plus years-it's done stretching).

    Wouldn't cause the sound correct?

    Correct, not with how your describing it.

    If you loosen the axle (not even hand tight) and adjusting bolts, can you move the wheel forward and rear-wards in the swing arm?

    It should move easily forward and back with the chain being the only thing to stop rearwards movement.


    Just to cover bases, you rear brake is not hanging up on the disc, correct?

    Re: Weird siren/whining like noise after chain/sprocket replacement

    I'm a big fan of DID X-Ring chains. All 4 of my bikes have 'em. For sprockets I use steel (except on MX bikes where I use aluminum) on my street bikes. They last the life of the chain.

    I think I finally got it, as you suggest really gave it a nudge after loosening the nuts and that moved it. Also I think when tightening originally I might have kept the adjusting nut in place while locking the other nut and it have tighted back up. Anyways no whirling sound around the block tonight, real test will be on the freeway tomorrow.

    Thanks again for all the help!!

    Re: Weird siren/whining like noise after chain/sprocket replacement

    Well despite chain slacking being loosened and the whining stopping initially, it has now returned. Any ideas other than loosening the slack further?

    Also check to see that the rear wheel is straight, not pointing slightly to the left or right. The chain will rub on the sides of the sprockets, you will see them as shiny areas on the sprockets where the chain is rubbing. Sight down the chain from rear to front, or use a chain alignment tool, or I just run the bike on the centerstand and watch how the chain is running on the rear sprocket and aligning the tire so the sprocket runs in the middle of the chain rollers.

    Re: Weird siren/whining like noise after chain/sprocket replacement

    Just to add to the above, you should be able to see the roller wear pattern right in the middle of each chain roller.

    What type of lube are you using?


    Re-reading your first post, you apparently did the work yourself.

    As noted above, it's possible you have a bad bearing, but in any case, I would remove the rear wheel.
    Inspect all bearings by hand, and with a parts fisch in hand, make sure you have all spacers, etc, installed and installed correctly.

    Probably not related but make sure your rear brake disc mount is properly inserted into the swing arm. It's REAL easy to miss that...

    Re: Weird siren/whining like noise after chain/sprocket replacement

    If not chain/sprocket related, and being that you have new sprockets and chain, then it is most likely the wheel bearings.Look for the uneven wear noted above, if it checks out then it might be wheel bearing replacement time. Some times you can get lucky and confirm this by removing the chain, putting the bike on the center stand and rotating the tire. If you have a bad bearing you'll hear it somewhere in the rotation. This is really a 50:50 shot though because there are a number of different ways that bearing fail and present the failure.

    How many miles on this bike?
    Is it stored outside?
    Do you clean it with a pressure washer?
