Hello,

I was riding on the highway doing 110km/h and i could hear a faint grinding sound which sounded like it was coming from the front. I know my chain has a tight spot and will be changing them very soon as im waiting on my new chain & sprockets to arrive.
My question is, would that tight spot somehow make that grinding sound?

I ride a 2007 R1, 4c8 screamer 😍

Yes, a binding chain could be the culprit. Put your bike on a rear stand and turn by hand to check it out. Also try rolling bike in neutral (not running) and see how noisy it is
