I saw your response with reference to chain adjustment and wondered how you went about it?
Have seen different methods, on side stand or not, weight on bike or not, measure slack from bottom of chain when pushed down to top of chain when pushed up, measure from same point on chain etc. etc.

Hey chris i know everyone has there own little way of adjusting chain slack. This is mine nothing technical about it. Loosen axle nut with bike on side stand then put it on paddock stand then undo & remove chain adjusters to squirt a little wd40 inside the swingarm & adjuster threads. Put back the adjuater covers & nuts then set chain slack & nip the axle nut. Take off paddock stand & rechack the slack with weight on & off the bike Then torque the axle nut to 117newton metres. Sometimes have to do it two or three times until i am happy with it, with weight off the bike i think it is perfect if you can push the bottom of the chain up to touch the swingarm with a bit of effort. Paul.
