Ok I know I need to change the chain. So tell if this could be associated, When I take off out of first I can feel a little clicking in my left foot, almost like the clutch is trying to catch but it wont, then it does and I dont hear anything else. I know this is a sucky description of whats going on but does anyone have any ideas, or am I just being a paranoid twat

Does the bike not move on its own power when its making the clicking?

How does the oil look? and smell? when's the last time you changed it?

did it just start making the clicking out of nowhere one day?

I wonder if it is how your chain is wrapping around your sprockets. Like I said before, your swingarm is so offset from being straight, the chain might be catching the sprockets hard during slow rotation. Unless you fixed that.

No fixed the alignment, problem, the only time it does it is when the I tighten the chain, after the chain stretches again it stops. As far as oil goes I havent been 1000 since the last time I changed it, and I tend to change the oil everytime it goes dirty, Like it nice and clean in there. Im wondering if it might be the clutch going out. Anybody have any experience with that.

Out of sync carbs or throttle bodies have been known to cause pulsating. I'd check that too. I sync my throttle bodies ay least twice a year. They're never off much but they are not perfect.

Could you be overtightening the chain?
