This is where you need to go to get solid information about bike repairs.

Just don't buy any of the silly crap they advertise that supposedly makes your bike more powerful. It's all a lie.

It could be anything, completely benign or very serious so best if you could visit a reliable mechanic. Finding the later would be the most challenging part.

Thank you very much.

I normally go to Yamaha service centre. Post probable it's becoz of sprocket need to be changed.

This Ah Boy mechanic told me that Indian bikes has this problem very often.

Now running 18ooo km, maybe it's time to change the sprocket as I did the tightening of chain a month ago but didn't last long more than few days.

Oil weekly. Next time ask if you can have an 'O' Ring chain fitted when you change the sprockets. It will cost a lot but will last 25,000 km typically.
