Question Weird noise..

Guys i was driving in the canyons and noticed a weird noise every time i made a left turn. As i enter a turn i push down on the left peg with my toes and tilt my head towards the left mirror and notice a weird scraping/scratching noise, but dont notice the sound when making right turns....its an odd noise too soft to be a crazy scratch noise and too loud to be just moving parts...any idea what it could be? I'm scared to take turns fast now....


-could it be the engine? (sounds very similar to engine winding..)
-sounds more like my peg scrapping against the chain...
-Am i just being paranoid?

Had a long ride yesterday and the sound is still there, sounds like a metal scrapping against something, done a lot of research and i highly doubt its the wheel bearing (apparently they're suppose to last a LONG time) my bike only has about 1500 miles on it....Noise only coming from left side (guessing front end) Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Grease your chain every 300 miles. You should clean it when you see that its dirty. That's what I do. You have to keep the O rings lubed so they don't dry out.

Purple power, gas or any heavy duty degreaser will work, dawn dish soap... Use the grunge brush? Not sure if that's what it's called, basically it's made for cleaning chains. Don't pressure wash the chain as it can ruin o-rings... As far as chain lube everyone has there own preference. I have always used WD-40 with no problems. I try and spray on every time I ride. It worked awesome on all my dirt bikes and those chains see some mud!
