Ive just bought my first road bike....a `95 ZX6.
Is it common to have alot of chain noise when the chain and sprokets need replacing. My front sproket has toothed up making a rattle which you only really hear when u slow down. Also, after a 20km ride or so....i find it hard to get the bike to start again...it just doesnt want to fire.....thus a clutchy has to save me.......

thanks heaps,....

The chain often gets noisier as it wears.

To check chain wear, grab a pin at the rear sprocket, and then pull it outward. If it lifts more than one-eighth of an inch, replace the chain and the sprockets.
