You know, I completely forgot that I also did a flush and fill of the radiator too.

I think you are right, too much maintenance. Gotta quit babying the bike.

Thanks, I appreciate it. My chain is stretching because I'm a really big guy riding on a GSXR-1000 with a few hp mods, -1 on the front sprocket, and sticky race tires; when riding hard at the track, something is going to give.

I bet most people on here adjust the chain the way you did, which is WRONG. Tension the chain to allowable clearance then spin the wheel to the tightest spot and check clearance is the correct method. If tight spot is too tight, you need to release it to have a little slacks. Other place will seems to be loose but that is the only way to adjust the chain. When you run into this type of situation, it is best to replace it. The chain is strong as it's weakest link.
