I am hearing chain noise (rubbing against the chain guard) on my 3 month old ZMA. This started after the first service during which in all probability the service center opened the bike's chain guard and in all probability did not fit it properly or did something to misalign the chain, now there is chain noise (grinding noise) when riding the bike. One of the other roadside mechanic told me that the chain is not aligned properly hence it tends to oscillate when riding causing the chain to rub on the guard. He tried some stuff and then the noise went away only to return back in 50-60 kms. Im not sure what I can do except that to remove the chain guard and run the bike as-is , maintaining the chain from time to time.
The 2nd problem I am facing is the engine noise at idle like khat khat khat , when I press the clutch the noise goes away, but this noise comes in when the clutch is released, this happens during idling in neutral only and not during other times. I reported this to the service center who said they would fix it in 2 days but did nothing and just handed over the bike. However, there is no issue in the bike's running , FE or anything else. It just runs fine. One more thing was this noise started after 1st service. One of the mech just said maybe the cam tensioner is bad, but I dont think so.
