hey guys i was riding my bike today and my dad was following me and he said he heard a metal grinding noise.... but me i cant hear anything, every now and then i hear a noise in front by the handel bars like a pinging noise....what can that be?

as far as the grinding noise coming from the back of the bike is that the chain or sprockets? like i said i did hear it but following me my dad said it did not sound good at all:cuss

Dunno man...the best way to help us help you is post a vid...

The R6 has transmission noises...that could be it, but Id have to hear it to be able to say if its normal or not...
