What loosens up? Back out the 4 on the top of the rear part of thethe swingarm and adjust the chain with the 1 or 2 nuts on the back of swing arm. Then tighten the 4 in the toptop

Too adjust the chain you loosen all four bolts on top, than loosen or tighten the bolt on the back, welcome to the forum!

Welcome to the forum! If you only came here for my feet I understand.

You're doing the adjustment right. I don't understand which order your putting it back together by.

From his sprocket thread.......it's turned into a fetish for some.
As for grammer and spell check Basket Case you used too wrong. The way you used it should be to. Too is for too much, too far, too fast. To is for going to the store. If you are going to post spellcheck....etc. Sorry can't help myself.

To the OP..............buy a manual or do some searchin'. If you loosen the four top bolts the back two (the other to, too, two:p) bolts should tighten and loosen the chain. Torque them back to spec when you are done.

you may need a new chain, if you cannot tighten the chain up. when you get a new chain spring for sprockets as well.

I've been looking at my feet and mine aren't as purty as yours Tucker. My big toes look swollen and fat and has four hairs on each of them. And my feet are a size 9. And no it's not true what people say,"You know what they say about guys with small feet":eek:

Doesn't the brake caliper have to be removed before you adjust tension on the chain...?
