chain slapping

Need a quick idea. The chain is fine once I start moving this only happens at low speeds. Chain rolls fine while in neutral and on a stand. I'm thinking it may be the CCT. That's my only idea.

it has tight spots from negligence, and not doing maintenance. Get a new chain and sprocket and maintain them!
that thing sounds like a roller coaster chain when your going up the hill

EDIT: actually it looks pretty clean at the end of the video, check the whole thing anyway for frozen links

It just started yesterday out of no where. I've never had the problem before. I lube and adjust the chain when needed. Idk where the maintenance idea came from.

Yeah I know dude it freaked me the hell out lol. I'm telling you I keep good care of the chain. That's why I'm confused man. It goes away as soon as I hit the throttle though and is smooth after that.

its tight loose spots in the chain, since there is no load on the chain its just doing what ever it damn well pleases, is fairly normal for a chain in rough shape.

I've never changed this on my bike, however I know there's a chain slider that sits on your swingarm, maybe that could be worn and causing the noise?

However, my thinking is the actually chain itself, as well.

Put some Lucas 80-90W gear oil in a rag and run the chain through the rag. Feel for frozen links. Make sure the rear wheel is aligned and then retighten the chain.

Anything to get some of the kinks out if that's indeed what it is. I never thought tight spots could jump and bind the chain up like that. I feel like a douche.

feel for tight links before you start buying stuff, go through each link and bend it up and down, if you find tight one, go from there with what you want to do.

If you use the Lucas 80-90W gear oil you won't have these problems and you'll get 2-3x the mileage out of your chain and sprocket set. One bottle will last a long, long time. Equivalent to numerous cans of chain wax. The oil will free up the kinks.

SO instead of using the usual chain lube the gear oil will do the job of both cleaning and lubricating?

if you are going to use gear oil, i suggest getting those blue nitril gloves most auto parts stores are now starting to cary ...

gear lube smells like rotten eggs, and the smell will stick to every thing, and will pass through those gloves a little, its a very "fine" smell...

For the most part, yeah. I actually clean my chain every time I change the rear tire.

WThat's why I'm confused. Because I cleaned and lubed her up more than every tire change.

chains are a consumable item.

they wear, stretch and after some time they need to be replaced.

how many miles on this chain?

Alright I used the gear oil. Although it did allow the chain to run smoother by hand still I have the same result when in gear rolling with no throttle. I'm still confused as it goes away as soon as I give it any throttle at all

Of course not man lol. It feels like the bike is lurching forward a little bit when I'm just letting it pull itself. Maybe I'm just super paranoid. It's not hesitant or anything once under throttle. Just once putting around under engine power alone is when it does it.

newbie, Give the oil some time to work into the chain. Has the rear tire been removed lately? Adjust the chain after the oil loosens the chain.
