Bikes is making a noise

This is going to be impossible to diagnose but what the hell. It's a squeaking noise at moderate speeds ( highway). Really noticeable when you slightly roll off the throttle. Almost sounds like something is rubbing. But could be engine/ valve maybe. Bike is an 01 R6 with about 15k miles. Thanks

check your wheel spacers and dust seals, also see if your brake pads are dragging on the rotor or if your rotor has rust built up on it at all

im gonna stay with my original throey and expand upon it a bit,

dry chain is making a clatterish should and when slightly rolling off it puts the slack on the top of the chain loop this slack is dragging on the chain protector rubber thing on the swing arm giving the squeek portion of the noise.

Jason is describing the CCT sound effects also.

His chain is just coming out your ass. my chain is coming out your head.

It's a definite squeak. I dont think its engine related. I don't like that Jason's chain is coming out of my ass.

On throttle or off throttle?

Wheel bearings? Do you have stands? Put the fucker in the air and spin the wheels.

How about your brake pads? Are there any left? Caliper hitting rotor?

Is your chain as dry as the Mohjove desert?

God bless the person who takes this one for a test ride. Lol!
