Rev 3 2004 Chain Adjustment


Recommended Posts

Hi, I’m just recommissioning a 2004 Rev 3 that’s been laid up for a number of years and could do with some clarification with respect to how to correctly set the chain tension. The manual shows 20mm gap from the top of the chain tensioner to swing arm. Not easy as my tensioner is a bit skew-if, and is this with the bike supported on a centre stand, on the ground or loaded etc.?

Searching for an answer throws up various methods and suggests tension should be set with the axel / swing arm pivot / front sprocket aligned i.e. effective maximum length. 

Any help as always gratefully received!
