Where does the noise sound like it's coming from? Is is speed or RPM dependent? Does it do it under load or no load?

Yeah, you gotta be more specific about the noise but I would check to make sure the chain is tight enough and not rubbing and that you axle blocks and chain tensioner bolts are tight...

its under load when the noise occures and the chain is at a perfect tension.... almost sounds like something is grinding or something hard to say ne ideas hope that helps

does the wheel spin freely in neutral and bike is off. you should be able to get several turns out of it. if not, try adjusting the alignment.

a lot of times when you change things you are hyper-sensitive to new noises. a lot of time they were there before, but you never noticed them.

I had the same thing happen to me. When I put the new chain on I tightened it more than the old one and it knocked off that cheap stock rubber chain slider. The noise I heard was my chain rubbing on the swingarm.
