hi!
Sorry, not sure if the words in english are the right ones.

Do you notice a different sound when you lay down to the left side? when I turn to the left at mid revs 5k-6k I can hear a fast "clac-clac-clac". Everything works perfectly, but I only hear it when I bow the bike to the left...

Am I the only one? (2021 Z, 3000km, 1900 miles)

Maybe you're hearing sound from the chain. If it lacks lubrication, it can make noise. When riding in a straight line, if I swivel my left knee outward, I can sometimes hear the chain.

Yea a +1 on this. My Z's chain has become slack twice now, somehow from the axle and tension adjuster working themselves a bit loose. Got to make sure they're torqued up properly and loctite etc. because doubtful it's stretched at 3000km. Anyway just check the play in the chain first, I can't imagine that noise would be anything else.
