    When riding my bike in low gear or just pushing it I noticed a squeaking noise coming from the chain towards the front sprocket. It only happens only in a certain spot in the rotation and only going forward in neutral or in gear. I have included a video Any suggestions on where to look would be appreciated.

    Back your rear brake adjusting nut of a couple of turns and see if it goes away. It sure sounds like simple brake squeal in your video.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Thanks Guys. I am not much of a wrench so I was very happy to find that was the problem. I backed it off a couple turns and that did the trick. What a great resource this site is. I would have spent alot of time looking other places and you guys knew the simple fix. Thanks again.
