My chain always kinks when it's dirty. After you clean it and lube it you may have to tighten it. It's really easy - you can do it yourself.

Pull how far? That's as far as I could pull it in the picture, and the chain was slack. If I push up on the bottom of the chain between the sprockets, I can still pull it a tiny bit, but not enough to show a gap like in the pic.

Your chain is going to be able to move up and down a little bit - that's okay. It doesn't look like you're pulling it off the sprocket enough to worry about.

I think bluewave was offering help if you're close. He's a nice guy like that.

If you haven't done it, yet, I highly recommend Motorcycles Unlimited's mc basic maintenance class - it's very informative if you're new around bikes.

Yup. If you were close I was gonna say bring it by and we can take a look and drink a cold beer. You cant say for sure by the pics. The chain need to be rolled while being inspected.
