Re: gsxr 1000 09 chain slack
Um... are you tightening BOTH bolts and nuts on the swing arm axle assembly, and not just the axle nut? I torque my axle nut even slightly more than what is in the manual - it came that way out of the crate and I have matched it straight from the factory every time. I hand tighten is as much as I can with the tool they provide and then use a ballpeen hammer to go 2 more rotations pretty much. I don't get any slack and no friction on mine. I just did it again this weekend and re-attached the rear.
