Thanks guys for the words so far. The chain is still pretty new - just under 4000 miles. I checked to see if it had stretched and it doesn't seem to have done that.
The manual calls for the chain to be between 1" and 1.5". I can't remember who it was, but someone said that they set their chain at .8" with the new non-dampered sprocket and it kept the harmonic hum down. But I understand you guys when you recommend 1.5" - I've usually set my chains a bit loose also. If I did that however, the loosest part would then be abut 2.5 inches - way too loose.
What kind of differences do you find on your chains between the tightest and the loosest part? Is a one inch difference more than normal?
