I checked my pedals and cranks and there is no play coming from the bottom brackets, but there is slight noise whenever I pedal mainly to the left hand side do you think that this is okay? Do my bearings need regreasing? Would it be fine , since I have been riding the bmx like this or maybe since I got it and I think that this is a normal noise and there have been no problems. do you guys think it is fine and does not need a checkup or regreasing? I think it should be fine and absolutely is normal, is it normal? What’s your opinion guys?

Please help thanks

If it's creaking. It could be metal on metal without sufficient lubrication. It'll be fine but if it annoys you, try removing the crank arms and greasing the splines.

are they 8 spline cranks? and is the noise when you put pressure down on the cranks? if so, grease the spindle splines then put it back together, that's probably the culprit
