Need a Quick Answer.

Recommended Posts

My Xr100 chain is real loose. Does anyone know how much play it can have before its too much. I would like to know in the next 30 min. cause my dad is going to come home and take me to ride. I'm not sure if its too loose or not. Please someone letme know :cry:

three finger rule, between the swingarm and the top part of the chain. Just tighten it if you have adjustments left.

you can have 3" and be ok. If it is too tight you will have more of a problem then if too lose. Have fun!!!

Hey, 3 fingers or inches sounds about right, But I've got something to add on this subject. On my 200 I try to keep it at a decent tightness but it slackens its self off after a few hours riding. I ride my bike most days and give things a quick check and the chain never comes off but always looks real loose and will never stay tight enough.

It will heat up and expand, that is ok. Just don't make it too tight. A little tighter than 3 is alright, just leave some slack at ALL times. :cry:
