I have had my VZ800 Marauder for about a month now, and over the past few days there has been an increase in noise from the gear/chain housing.....

At low speeds it sounds like the chain is rubbing, and also there is a clunking noise coming from the same area.

I did read somewhere that the chain can become stiff in places and therefore not follow the sprocket...I don't know...

It has only done 20K Kms so things can't be wearing out already!!!!

A chain can be stretched due to riding habits extremely quickly.

Jack the rear wheel up off the floor and slowly turn the wheel to see if you have any tight parts in the chain,this is the easy way to check it.Also check the rear sprocket for hooked teeth,they should be straight,these are things you can do without getting your spanners out to delve further.

20k on a chain wow that's good going my bike eats em up hahaha although it has a little bit more power than your vz I would agree with the others check your chain and sprockets do you keep the chain lube up? is the chain sagging you might need to adjust it  by putting the rear wheel back a bit

I used to have to adjust my chains every dew rides, probably a cheap chains. Oh OK then they always were. Worked out expensive in the long run though as I would have to buy another cheap chain occasionally along with sprockets as well.

Hello Ian,
I agree with the comments about the chain the guys have said,,, the chain on the VZ800 is quite long and if not maintained and the chain free play kept within spec it can have a lot of excess free play,,,,,, at the front of the swing arm on the left side is a shaped/moulded rubber buffer intended to stop the chain clattering the swing arm,,, at lower speeds stop start town riding speeds, if the chain is worn/loose it can flap around a lot as you go on/off the throttle the chain whips,,, I have replaced a few of the shaped/moulded rubber buffers as they ware through and also they appear to rot over time plus all the snot and clagg that gets deposited on it from the chain lube e.t.c speeds up the rubber decay,,,,, when this shaped/moulded rubber buffer wares through the chain can be heard rubbing and when the chain whips it wallops the swing arm giving a clunk,,,,, it is well worth checking this shaped/moulded rubber buffer mate,,, it tends to ware through at the top and can score the swing arm quite badly,,, if it is worn and you need to replace it you will also have to sort the chain,,, I have a quality DID chain and scott oiler on my VZ800.
Hope this is of some help mate.
