    Chain Adjustment

    Hi All,
           Would anybody be able to tell me if checking chain slack whilst the bike is on the side stand (as the manual suggests) would make a lot of difference from checking it whilst on the centre stand?

    Many thanks for any help

    Sleeperman.

    Yes, it makes a difference and the difference varies depending on what setting you have the rear shock set at. Its not a science, its 20-30 mm, that's 25 mm +/- 5 mm
