So, This past Saturday I took off the front and rear tires to replace the rubber with Metzler M3s... Well when all was said and done, I put the bike back together and rode it around my friends driveway.
I noticed what sounded like the chain rubbing against something. Do you guys have any clues as to what this might be or what i should look for... Maby an alignment problem? :banghead Thanks...

When you took off your rear tire, did you change any of the adjustment on your chain tensioners?

When your rear tire was re-installed, you should have checked to make sure that your tensioners were adjusted, and tightened down. Equally adjusted as well (ticks in the adjuster for lining them up).

When done, your chain should have approximately 1/2 inch of slack up and down.

What may be happening is that your chain is too tight or too loose and rubbing on your swing arm.

Just a thought.. it's actually hard to diagnose when you can't see it, don't know if this helps you any.
