X2 ... change out the chain.

The OEM setup is very robust and can last forever if maintained properly ... but it sounds like she is done.

Interesting. But I'd get really tired of always adjusting slack on the chain...

For 800 a pop? No thanks! Get a quality rear shock instead.

Make sure the front sprocket is tight on the countershaft. Your chain could be dry, too loose or too tight.

How many total miles on the chain? I have found that I get a clicking that you can even hear just rolling the bike if the chain is too tight.

Good question. And what is its rated tensile strength? A bike with as much grunt as the 919 should have no less than a 10k# chain. Excessive stretch will also cause such a noise and kill a front sprocket. Chain stretch is usually irregular too. Check your chain tension in several places. If you have tight / loose spots it's time for a new chain and sprockets.

Well at the risk of turning this into an "oil thread" the EK ZZZ 530 is the strongest longest lasting chain south of $200 I've encountered. The 530 ZZZ is rated at 11,100# and has given me exceptional service.

Where abouts in Oregon? Just moved from there to Phoenix

I highly recommend you check out LDH's 17/44 520 set up. I used the 17/44 combo for my commuting/track day duties and love it. Currently have the 17/43 and hate it, will be going back to 17/44 as soon as I can.

For great and easy chain maintenance, I highly recommend the Teflon Chain saver. Its wax based, stands up against the rain, dirt, etc and works exceptionally well.

What tires are you using in the great ol northwet?
