Re: how do you adjust you chain
yep, that happens to all of them, that is because as you tighten the axle, it squeezes the arms of the swingarm together. watch it as you tighten it, you can see them getting pulled together. What I do for most people when i adjust their chains, I get the chain slack to where I can lift it up to where I can just barely make it touch the swingarm while it is on the rear stand, axle loose, no passenger. Then when I tighten the axle nut it tightens it up a little and it is usually about perfect.
