Hi,
I just got my license and bought a 2020 Honda Rebel 500 ABS.
I learned on a 300 and loved it.

being new to this, I don’t know all the proper noises on a bike. So I have a dumb question about a noise my bike makes.

when I accelerate moderately in 3, but mostly 4, 5, 6....
I can hear like a chain buzzing sound, but really like sizzling or crackling coming from down there... not crazy loud, but still... if I pull the clutch or let go the throttle, it stops.
When Accelerate all out, don’t really hear it as much

Took it to dealership: the rear wheel was slightly off line. Chain lubed and proper tension. They say it is normal.....
issue, I thought a sound should always be there but be more and less depending on conditions.... just not appear with throttle and disappear when coasting.

thanks for your advice!

update:
Done with break in so pushed it in the 6-8000 rpm range and sound still there....sizzling sound when pull the throttle.... disappears as soon as I coast.
