So I live in Florida and it was such a nice day to go out and ride. I took my 07 Cbr600RR out and everything seemed fine. After about 20 minutes of riding I started hearing a Click, Click, Click noise that sounded ever time I took off from a stop. The noise was sounding from 3k-4k rpm. So I turned around and headed home and found that my chain was loose. I tightened the chain and got back on the bike and started riding but the noise was still there. It got a lot quieter but I still heard it. So I put the bike back in the garage and now I have no idea what it can be....... Please help

It's still the sound of the chain hitting the swingarm. Your chain may still be a little bit loose compared to factory specs. Could also be that your chain is at the point where it stretches easily and is time to be replaced, as well as your sprockets. Are all of the teeth on the rear sprocket fine?

The chain will act different when under a load and suspension compression then it will ever do stationary.

The clicking sounds just like a worn cv joint on a car. When I tightened the chain it got a little better but still there. I am now wondering about what Demented said and if it could be my sprocket. What kind of noise does a worn sprocket make?

First check that your chain slack is actually adjusted to what the owners manual says, and then on a rearstand spin the rear wheel and look at the sprocket. If it looks damaged, it's time to replace.

I put the bike on the stand and turned the bike on and tried to find out where the noise was coming from but it would not do it. It seems to only happen when I ride it but it sounds like it is from the front sprocket... What was it that happened with your bike exactly newbie04RR?........ Seems like Im having the same issue as you did

If you put it on the front stand, turn the bike on, keep all digits away from the drive train and let the bike idle, you'll have a better chance of finding the problem.

I did the same thing with my dad who thought his transmission was going out on his bike. His chain was smacking the hell out of the swingarm.
