Dirt bike chain

Recommended Posts

When I was a kid I put a chain on that was way to tight it broke my hub after about 4 minutes. It wasn't one of my brightest moments but I was young and impatient.

All you have to do is get your manual out and follow the instructions for setting the chain tension for YOUR bike. Once you've done it once by the book, you'll always know what the correct amount of slack is for YOUR bike.

 

This is THE BEST chain tension write-up you'll find on the web:

Too loose also risks damaging your cases or your chain coming off . Over tightening will also cause the chain to stretch more than usual.
