Hey guys,

didn't think I would have to post here again, but I am experiencing some weird sounds. When I go around 50-60 KM/h (I don't know if it changes at faster speeds as I don't go on the highway yet), it sounds like a rattling, and almost like paper rubbing against itself. It is very hard to hear over the wind, to be fair.

I am still in my break in period.
I have 200 KM total.
It is worth noting I had my front wheel come off the ground by accident when trying to rev :^) I am hoping this didn't damage anything

Could anyone provide some insight on what this sound could be? Also, should I be taking it to the mechanics?

Thanks guys

Check your chain. Mine was making a weird noise because it was loose.
due to strong engine braking the chain can stretch if consistently excessive engine braking is applied.
1. Try not close the throttle quickly, do it gradually.
2. Apply a little brake at the same time when closing throttle. so not to overstress the chain.
