Shortening Chain - Yes or No?
Recently took my 06 GSXR 600 in for a full service and was told that the bike/chain is nearing the end of its adjustment - that is, with the adjuster fully out, there is nearly too much slack.
The DID heavy duty X ring chain only has 4,000 km on it and was installed by the previous owner. The workshop said the chain is in excellent condition, not worn or anything and suspect because of that the previous owner installed the chain with too many links on it.
Rather than look at replacing a chain in great condition, is it possible to remove a link or two, to shorten it within spec?
If this is possible, is it recommended or a risky move?
