    I will inspect it when i break it down . The noise has been getting progressively worse over about a year , oil changes dont make any difference . the bike has covered only 48,000 mls . I  had the same noise on an old ford escort and that turned out to be a layshaft bearing pitted .
    Update !!
    My bike lives in Thailand so apologies for the slow response , im in Thailand now and had a chance to ride the bike and narrow down the noise . It is noticeable in third gear  , there are no issues with gear change or anything else . and is only slightly more noisy than my other 2010 bike in the uk therefore i have decided to leave it as it is for now . If it gets worse then i will decide then what to do . Thanks for all your replies and advice .

    Update #2
    I have now returned to Thailand
    So i brought a used gearbox with me from  the UK to replace the noisy one and fully intended to get on with the job of swapping them over . The previous owner had replaced the chain and sprocket so I thought , but did not replace the front one which was worn out and very hooked . I have therefore ordered a complete kit but in the meantime I fitted a brand new front cushioned OE one I had in stock , and guess what ... the noise has almost gone itís still there , but acceptable . Who would have thought it . I suppose itís good to have a spare gearbox just in case eh ?

    Phew, that is a dodged bullet. Just goes to show all is not what it seems.   Check everything, then check it again. Pleased for ya.  :152: :banana:
    What would you rather be, or a wasp?

    serves me right for assuming the front sprocket had been changed when someone fitted a new chain , but hey ho  every day is a school day ....
