Looks good to me.I also move the tire and check it.Some times you will find it's tighter in some areas.jasperj
Thank you! Something weird is going on after torquing my rear axel nut.. there is a click click sound coming from the rear wheel and chain area. I hear it after the ride is done and when moving my motorcycle manually without the engine. Could it be that the torque settings (72) is settling in? My chain is still at the same tension. A little nervous to ride at high speedsLooks good to me.I also move the tire and check it.Some times you will find it's tighter in some areas.jasperj
Well, Ill let you know what I did. On its side stand, I loosened the rear axle nut and took off the nut (probably shouldn’t have?) and then loosened up both sides of the chain adjusters all the way until the metal covers were loose- I then tightened both sides just enough for the metal covers to stay put, that way I can have a equal basis on both sides to tighten. I then tightened maybe half a turn on both sides and achieved my desired chain slack. Then I torqued my rear axle nut back to 72 ft lbs of torque while having a wrench on the other side to make it easier and not just a freely spinning nut.Check your chain alignment, it maybe slightly out of alignment with the front sprocket.
the lengths of the threads that come out on each side is equal, at the least in the most closest way I can.3. Wheel out of alignment. The easiest way to make sure the wheel is aligned is to go to the adjustment nuts and measure the length of the threads that sticks out on each side, it should be the same. There's many methods to check the alignment but I've found this one to be the most accurate and also the quickest without needing extra tools.
