For Everyone with a "noisey" 16T counter...

I'm sure it has been discussed somewhere, but......relative to the harmonics with the non-dampened 16T sprocket, the noise all but goes away with the chain adjusted to it's maximum specified LOOSE tolerance. Anything less than that will yield the dreaded harmonic at approx 50mph, that gets louder as the chain slack decreases. It is crucial to also make sure things are "aligned" as well. Played around with it last night and did some experimenting {after I changed my swingarm}, and the difference is night and day.......just thought I would throw this out....
