Yes it could be, but it could be any number of things. The only way to be certain would be to hear it. Ask a mate who has some knowledge of bikes. Where the sound is coming from will give you an idea of the fault, but only an idea.
Replace the chain. A rusted chain will ruin a good sprocket. Chances are the chain was needing to be replaced even before the rust started. Check the sprockets. The ends of the teeth should be rounded. As a sprocket wears, the teeth start getting sharp on the ends. A bad sprocket can ruin a new chain.
hello the front forks are stock as follows.
the preload adjustment should be to where the third groove is shown just above the fork cap.
and the top screw (rebound dampening) turn clockwise till stopped. then out one turn counterclockwise.
then at the bottom of the fork. adjust the compression dampening screw all the way in clockwise then out 1.5 turns counterclockwise.
the same settings are for both forks.
the rear standard preload should be set with a spanner wrench and the 2nd notch from softest is standard.
at the bottom of the shock turn the damper screw in clockwise to stop, then turn out one turn.
and the comp dampening screw on the rear resivoir should be turned all the way in clockwise then turn out once turn counterclockwise.
and those are the stock settings.
