Chain Adjustments

Okay, I've done my homework by reading through the other threads on adjusting a motorcycle chain but am still a bit nervous about doing it. I plan on following the instructions found on the sport rider website.

Before I begin does anyone have any suggestions of things to look out for, to make sure to do, or advice in general on how to tighten up a motorcycle chain??

Thanks.

make sure you don't tighten toooo much, it'll eat your sprockets, same with being too loose.. adjust then make sure that you roll the tire for a good few seconds, and re check it, i usually do it the long way and adjust then roll the bike for several feet and check it,.

Your best bet is to have somebody show you, that knows what they are doing.
