prop it up on that center stand that is directly under your chain in the video

loosen axle nut

crank chain adjusters to pull wheel back

adjust till you have around 3/8" of vertical movement in the chain with you on the bike and the suspension compressed


make sure you tighten everything back down




clean and lube your chain while youre at it

4) PUT SAID BIKE ON CENTER STAND IF HAS ONE (CLEAN CHAIN DURING THIS STEP)

5) FIND LOOSE SPOT IN CHAIN, ADJUST FROM THERE

6) BREAK THE LOCK NUT ON THE ADJUSTERS

7) SPIN ADJUSTER OUT TO GET PROPER TENSION (FACTORING IN FOR THE SWING ARM FLEX UPON TIGHTENING)

8) LOCK LOCK NUT AGAINST ADJUSTER (MAY NEED A WRENCH IN SPROCKET TO HOLD TENSION)

9) TIGHTEN AXLE (WITH BIKE BACK DOWN ON THE GROUND)

10) TORQUE AXLE TO SPEC(HENCE THE USE OF EL MANUAL)

11) GET BEEDGE FROM GF/WIFE

12) DRINK BEER AFTER NOT BEFORE

14) HAVE FUN ALONG THE WAY AND BE SAFE OUT ON THE ROAD

At least he noticed something was wrong and asked for help. Giving him crap for doing exactly what we wish more noobs did is pretty stupid.

thanks guys. as a matter of fact, Mr Bandito has been texting me with lot's of questions about his bike setup and maintenance and i'm happy to take time out of my day to text him any answer he needs. when he texted me about this chain ordeal today, i suggested that he make and post this video because the responses may be beneficial to other riders who are leary of basic maintenance. it's sad that people would rather take the time to type smart ass responses and bust balls in the same space and timeframe that they could quite simply answer the guys questions.

OK I had to go back and look twice but your adjustment is back WAY farther than my B6's is. Count your links just to be sure. It might be stretched out too. But all in all my axle sit in just about the center even a little in front if the center line.Fast Larry <--- check this site out it helped me alot when I started a bunch of small stuff on my B6.

The chain will slap around like that a little when you have it on the center stand because there is no tension on it. How does it feel wrong when you ride it? Chains are noisy so its normal to hear some sound coming from it.
