Question Diavel Chain Noise

Dear Members,

I bought Ducati Diavel Carbon Red around 4 months back. I am happy riding the motorcycle besides one issue. I found that at lower speed (2nd & 3rd gear), chain gives a very peculiar noise like "clock-clock". On higher speed it has no problems and gear shifting is absolutely fine.

Ducati service engineer told me that this sound can be due to loose chain. Upon this i got the chain tighten as per ducati measurements. However the sound still persist and feel very annoying when you drive at lower speed. I understand that this is a powerful bike and meant to drive at a reasonable better speed. But it does make a difference if you are riding in city area and you have to face clock clock sound when your raise your speed.

Please share your comments.

The sound you hear is the chain hitting the lower part of the arm ... This happens due to two factors .... 2 and 3000 rpm are very low Rpms for the diavel and it jerks around ... And the second reason is due to the geometry of the chain in the bike .... The best way to get rid of this sound is to glue underneath the arm a small piece of plastic (you have lots of videos in the web about this) so the chain hits the plastic not the arm and it softens very much the noise
