Clicking noise from rear after riding in rain on Thursday

I first noticed it Friday when I was moving my bike out of the garage. When rolling the bike out, I noticed a clicking or snapping noise after moving it about a foot, started out slow maybe once every few seconds then eventually a few times per second. So it's not like it happens at a certain point in the rotation of the chain or rear wheel. Does the chain need a good lube, is it time for a new chain and rear sprocket, or does it sound like something else? I hate to throw more money at my 14 year old bike with 30k miles...

Exclamation yea bro

Try chain lube first , wax tha chain good ...
If tha problem proceeds maybe a new chain
If the sprockets look thin on the teeth then replace
Before they break , but if its been awhile since chain lube
Start there first , a dry chain gettin weathered on , will start to kink

usualy a clicking noice from chain area means u have a tight spot in the chain and should get a new one before u ride anymore!!!! double check this by lifting the rear of bike up and put pressure on the chain and spin the wheel, if the amount of tension chainges in any spot then chain is toast. it should be a constant equal amount of tension.

if u want message me and ill take a look at it with u and figure out what it is. 832-316-3390 text or call

Should the front sprocket be changed too or just the rear sprocket and chain?

examine the chain. This is easier with a rear stand as you can lift the back off the ground and spin it freely. However you can still do this w/o one you will just need to push the bike around (have a friend do it).

Are you good about your chain maintenance? You should be cleaning it and lubing it every 500 miles.

Rule of thumb is to change both sprockets and chain at the same time.

Still made the noise on the rear stand. Didn't notice any visible kinking or snapping of the chain and I couldn't feel it in the chain, but I felt in the swingarm. Loosened the axle, noise stopped. Took off the wheel and the bearing in the rear sprocket assembly is really hard to turn by hand, and the rubber seal is deteriorating. Bought a full set of rear wheel and front wheel bearings, bought some fork seals while I was at it.

Went ahead and bought a new chain and Vortex sprockets. Stock size is 43/14, went with 45/13. I bought a clip type and a rivet type link, where can I can I take the bike to get the rivet link installed?
