Alright heres the deal I have a 2005 ZZR600 and its a great machine, problem is when i pull in the clutch all the way to come to a stop and rev the gas a little there is a click coming from the front sprocket like it turns a tad when i rev the throttle only when im rolling like it goes click click click "click meaning the chain kinda jerks a little. not enough to make the bike lunge just enough to be heard. I adjusted the clutch top and bottom and that did not help. Any thoughts?

Are you sure its coming from the front sprocket area? If so take off the front sprocket cover and inspect for debris or a badly worn front sprocket.Also check that the front sprocket lock washer and nut are on tight. May be able to find the the cause when you remove the cover.

Do you regularly clean and lubricate your chain?
Check the chain slack (spec is in the owner's manual)
If you have a swingarm stand put the bike up on the stand and rotate the rear wheel. Check for stuck links in the chain and rear wheel alignment. Good luck!

When's the last time you adjusted your clutch? Check to make sure it's fully disengaging when you pull that lever in.

I adjusted the clutch when i heard the noise. Its weird it only does it when your rolling. But if your at a dead stop it does nothing. Like if im coming to a stop sign and i pull the clutch in and give it a little rev like im sure everyone does it seems like the chain is jerking slightly. not enough to move the bike but like its pulling slack or something.

Yikes! Yep any lube that was on the chain got washed off and road muck took its place! Treat your chain to a nice cleaning with WD-40, wipe dry, then apply a good motorcycle chain lube. wipe off excess and then let it set up overnight. Ride it and I'll bet the noise is gone. [:M25]
