I might have over tightened it- the two things I wanted the guy at the shop to look at were chain tension and alignment, so I’m glad that those are your two highest order concerns.
When I dropped the wheel adjusters as far as they could go, the chain was DEFINITELY too slack, but I might have put a little too much tension into it adjusting it back- I don’t have a chain measurement tool, and frankly I’m not sure how accurate I was eyeballing it with my tape measure.

Aaaaaaaand my chain was way too tight. They fixed it. In case anyone is wondering, the stock chain is JUST long enough to go one tooth up in the front. With like one eighth of a turn left to spare on the adjuster nut.
So, since I haven’t had any response/answer on my question in the ”general discussion” area I make a try here. I just bought a Svartpilen 401-2020 that came with the Acrapovic slip on installed. My question is:
How much weight saving is this versus the stock exhaust/slip on? Anyone that knows? I am just trying to keep a track of were I am at the moment in regards of weight.
Thanks for all of these tips and measurements. I just bought a 401 Vitpilen and have immediately put it on a diet. I’ve ordered most of these lighter parts and will also be doing a 415 chain / sprocket swap. I’ll post some pics as it’s going on.
