Reply To: Chain tension


Out of curiosity today I took a bunch of measurements on my 701, it’s not a great comparison, but maybe a good illustration. However, when I set my chain tension so that it was 5mm off the swingarm under the vertical rib, like the manual calls for the chain slack measured at the rib, ends up being almost exactly 25 mm. So if your shop is using 5-7mm of slack, there is a good chance it is way too tight
