Yes, I changed the front sprocket to a 16 tooth not sure If I like it better than the 15 tooth because i feel like it takes away from the smoothness of switching to the next gear.
What company chain do you ride? 106 link 520 with or without o-ring?
Jutes, did changing the front sprocket make any difference in the noise? I tend to agree with Paul, it sounds fairly normal to me in your recording. One other thing to do: put the plastic sprocket cover back on. That will damp the noise somewhat.
Jutes, you need to use the two-lead meter. One probe goes into the socket for the orange wire and one goes to ground. You’re checking for 12 volts. Do you have a Clymer manual with the color-coded wiring diagram? If not, get one. You might also find a wiring diagram online somewhere.
Late edit: just noticed that you did say you have the Clymer manual.
