Initial chain adjustment done
Having just replaced the chain and front sprocket, I flipped the rear, the bottom fell out here and the bike's been sitting. Yesterday I made a run of about 100 miles and it was cold and damp. BUT the bike ran great so today I went back out and on the way in I wash the bike. I got it on the pit stands and checked the chain it was a bit loose so I did a quick adjustment and it's about 1 3/8" play now. I lubed it and cleaned the wheels good to get the excess wax off. However I did the adjustment on the pit stand not the sidestand/floor. I don't see as there would be any real difference BUT should I redo it?
BTW the speedo is no longer jumping up and down a couple MPH and the vibrations I had started the notice is all but gone. I went to a 16t up front and there are these radar signs here that show you your speed against the posted speed, no ticket thankfully! It's dead on now, before I was a bit under. BUT the bike still has enough "POKE" to get-up and roll. I'm turning about 7200 RPM at 70mph now and the bike feels much more relaxed.
Or was that look THEN leap?
