DR200SE 1996 - Chain Tension

Recommended Posts

My daughter rides a DR200SE (1996) and called to ask about her chain tension. I told her "An Inch" and be careful torquing the rear axle too tight.

Does anyone actually know the spec (Chain tension and torque on rear axle)?

I bought her the bike used, and didn't get an owners manual.

Thanks in advance.

2003 manual states 1.0 -1.6 inches (25-40mm) of chain slack and 47 ft/lbs for rear axle nut
