Chain is clicking

Hi guys. I tried search on the subject here-not much. I have clicking sound when I start moving in 1st gear from rear sprocket. It continues but quieter in 2nd and faded in 3rd. I know from my previous bikes its sound like worn out sprocket and chain but my sprocket looks really good. May be chain stretched out ? I have 19000 miles on the bike. Never replaced chain or sprocket, only adjusted chain according to specification. I am afraid its a bearings in the hub. Any help guys?

Have you put the bike on a rear stand and turn the wheel and see whats happening.Is the chain picking up on the rear sprocket and letting go?
I doubt if it is the hub.
Still sounds like chain/sprocket if it's a click.

Post a picture of the chain adjustment
It's probably the chain hitting the lower chain guide

I'm at 38,000 miles on the original chain and sprockets

To me, this sounds as if the rear wheel is out of alignment, i.e. not sitting square. I'm not sure if that's possible with the MV hubs (Noel?), but the symptoms fit perfectly.

Nigel;
About impossible on an MV.......
That said it's a 2nd Gen cush drive and it maybe wobbling enough for the chain to hit something,
but I doubt it
My vote, chain is too loose and hitting the lower chain guide

I run my chains a bit looser than the spec......my Aprilia RSVR is close to hitting the pipe .....a little stretch and it taps it
