New here

Hey guys I am new here.
I just bought an 05 R6 and love it, quite an improvement from a Ninja 250 haha, and am gonna be looking for people to ride with, so I figured Id come here and see what you guys have going on. Im still getting used to the new bike so it will probably be a few weeks before I will be able to confidently keep up.
Ill prolly be around snooping these forums for misc information.
I am an automotive technician so I have a good idea of how things work on cars, but bikes have a few things new that I need to learn about desperately

I noticed that my r6 has a whaawhaaawhaaa noise that happens while moving and even with the clutch held. The chain looks kinda wiped out so im gonna go get my chain and sprockets replaced this weekend. anyone else had a similar sound on their R6 I figure the sprockets got out of alignment cause there is some wear on the teeth, sorry its kinda hard to replicate the sound through type.
anyways, thanks for having me!

BTW I have a GSX-R 1000 service manual that I would like to trade for an 05 R6 manual if anyone knows someone that might be looking. not sure the year, but i will find out tomorow
