Is the chain loose ?
You would need to tighten it..
Loosen the back wheel and the wheel will move back thus tighening the chain..

If it is not loose - you might need to replace it..
Also - be sure it is well oiled..

Good luck

I have a noise coming from chain area when going into second and chain makes noise


Check your chain tension, it could be flapping around when you shift from 1st gear to 2nd, as well as there could be some road grime inside the smaller sprocket housing.

Loud clicking noise coming from crankshaft pulley and goes away when a/c is on and when idle is higher. Why the noise?


Take a dry bar of soap and touch it against the sides of the belt(s) while the engine is running. If the noise goes away for a little while, the noise is from the belt settling into the grove of the pulley. Belts can really make loud pooping noises.

If this has no effect, then your timing chain may be too loose for the timing chain tensioner to compensate, and the chain is slapping against the inside of the timing chain cover.

If this is the case, do not let this condition go on. The timing chain cover is aluminum, and the chain is high grade steel. The chain will wear a hole in the cover if it is hitting the inside of it, and that is allowed to continue.

Poss loose timing chain- is there an external adjuster?


The cam chain tensioner on the R6 is external but it is also automatic. If you are hearing cam chain noise, the tensioner could be getting close to ratcheting up one notch to quiet the chain down. The chain could be stretched enough to make noise but not loose enough to let the tensioner take up the slack yet.
You can loosen the adjuster mounting bolts very slowly until you hear 1, and only 1, click. Then bolt the tensioner back down and start the engine and see if it is noticeably quieter. If it is, leave it alone. If the noise is unchanged, the chain was not loose and the noise is coming from somewhere else.
Thanks

Drive chain goes loose and tight on back wheel turn


No.That was the problem.The chain and the sprockets needed to be renewed.
When you will take, the rear sprocket's base, off the axle check it's bearing.Just put your finger in and turn it slowly to see if it "locks" instantly.It will be nice if you renew it now that you disassembling the chain drive system.

Chain


If the chain is making a rattling noise it is too loose and also needs chain oil. Lubricate and adjust the chain before riding again. A loose chain can come off and do some really nasty damage to the bike and to the rider.

Ever had the rear wheel lock up at 60 MPH and have your body fly over the handlebars and onto the street? Pay attention to the chain.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Timing chain wear


That is correct. If your engine is whinning at about 2000 rpm's and its a high pitch whine, you need upper timing chains and chain tensioners. aka plastic gizmo as you called it. The timing chains ride off the plastic portion of the tensioner causing the noise, basically the chain is riding on steal stub from within the tensioner, that's where the noise is coming from. Waranree on this is 5years or 60000 miles which ever comes first. And the new tensioners are updated parts.
