Chain

How much slack should your chain have in it? Is there a quick way to eyeball it and see. There are some scratches on the swingarm.. think the chain may have got it... Thanks

About 1" or so up and down movement.
The chain should move easily, it's not like plucking a banjo string.
Roll the bike forward and check it at a couple of plces, you may have soem tight and lose spots.
If you can swing by after tomorrow when we reopen, I'll show you how to check / adjust it, no charge.
