on the swingarm there is a nut on one side, there are markings in that area. Look at the marking on one side and look at the marking on the other side of the swingarm in the same area. Make sure both are at the same marking. Hope that helps without the pics.

OK this is what it looks like on a 07 ninja 650. see the numbers next to the axle bolt? that is what they are talking about. make sure the numbers match on each side. The numbers tell you how far forward or back your axle is. You do not want different numbers on each side cause then your tire is cockeyed in your swingarm.

The chain was either too tight or not aligned.
Swing by and I'll show you how to properly adjust and lube your chain, no charge.

I think its too tight. I tried to pull gently down on the chain to measure it.. but it only budged maybe 1/4-1/2 of an inch.

Patrick, you are probably going to be my best friend on motohouston. I will definitely take you up on that offer.

P.S. I checked the alignment.. they're both at 2 on both sides.
