I'm new to the forum and the dr and have a question. I just had my 08 dr650 in for its first service and asked them if my chain was too loose as I could push up from the bottom and it would hit against the swing arm. They said it was fine. Well I read through the book and it said that you should have 1.2-1.5 inches of play when pushed up from the bottom. mine hits the swingarm this is sitting on the side stand. So who is right the dealer or the book. I know not to get it to tight and it should have some play. I think there wanting to sell me a new chain and sprockets very soon, I love it all but the seat! what so you all think.???
