if you only changed your chain, it could be worn sprockets not matching the new chain...

did you replace the front sprocket?
most aftemarket sprockets dont have the rubber cushion like the OE has. and they whine, and make a lot more noise.


and i 2nd the correct adjustment. if its too tight, it will whine too.

problem fixed turned out to be 2 problems one was over tightened solid nose master link, and the other seemed to be the axle nut wasn't torqued enough and was maybe throwing the alignment out, any way its fixed.

Digital Calipers ($10 at Harbor Freight) come in very handy when measuring how much to crimp the master link.

Lose Axle Nut? That's why you need a 1/2" torque wrench!! Very cheap at Harbor Freight too!
