As my chain/sprocket set came to the end of its useful life, I got a whole lot more grinding sound out of it at low speeds, and a bit of whine at higher speeds. I noticed significant wear on the front sprocket. That was at 18800 miles. I also had to start adjusting it more frequently. When you tighten your chain, do you measure the play in the chain before re-tightening your rear axle nut? Did you make sure that the chain was properly aligned after tightening/loosening it?
How many miles are on your chain/sprockets?
