    Default FZ1 weird buzzing from chain/front sprocket/gearbox

    Hello everyone. I'm new here, sorry if I missed any posting rules.

    So, the problem is: recently I've noticed a weird buzzing sound coming from the front sprocket area. The first time was when I was riding. Mostly at 2-3-4th gears, when the engine's load is sort of synced with the constant speed. So I got to my garage, put the bike on the central stand, put it on a gear and let go of the clutch. Spun the wheel a little bit and the sound came on at about 15-30 mph from the chain/front sprocket area. Then I turned up the revs, the sound went away but I heard the second, kind of similar sound, coming from somewhat closer to the gearbox. Sounded more like a chainsaw.

    The last thing I did with the bike is I cleaned the chain with recently bought KettenMax. The chain came out cleaner than before but I doubt it might be the issue.

    Video included. 0:20 - the first sound. 1:26 - the second one.

    Mine does that when it needs lubrication. A few shots with chain wax and it's done.

    You're supposed to lube the chain?
