If you can hear the chain over the engine - its too tight or out of alignment
or stretched. when my master link stretched it clunked like crazy as it went between the teeth of the sprockets, and I could feel the vibrations through the left peg

i'm trying out a chain spray wax, i'll take a pic of it the week end and post it, it seems to be lubing quite nicely and minimizing chain noise.

I'd be more concerned about my tires. After 56,000 km they're probably well past their best.

Jerome10 have you checked the front sprocket tho? That rear sprocket can definitely go on one more set of chains. If you do decide to change it, I'd suggest upgrading to a lighter sprocket. I don't know what kind of noise you're hearing but mine was having clunky noises until I brought it to the shop and find out it's a little tight. Small symptoms of these bike are really noticeable, if something's not working right the bike will tell you.

The chain is going to make some noise as it contacts the sprockets. if it does some clunking and changes tension at different parts, then one (or more) of your links is stretched somewhere. Noise can also come from worn out o-rings between your links. Both situations require the chain to be changed.

Occasionally, give a thorough check to all the teeth on both sprockets as well.
