Re: Chain slack for track
It's good advice, as long as you have a lick of sense. If you see the bottom of the chain, and it's straight as a yardstick, it's no good. There should be a visible drop to it in the middle. Measuring it is good, but the factory specs are usually just 1/4" or more too tight. Also, when you're measuring it to those factory specs, the end result can vary widely. One factor is how hard you push or pull it during the measurement. Another is that when tightening the axle, it can change the amount of slack by a bunch. Just touching the swingarm when you push it up with a medium firm force is about right.
