If you mean space the hub/sprocket to driver's right to allow more clearance for chainstay/chain - I don't really want to do that as it's in line with the engine's 10t so perfectly now...

or... am I misunderstanding?
On the previous page you said you need the chain to stretch so you can get the tension right but the photo you posted shows an adjustable tensioner. Why not just raise or lower the tensioner wheel to get what you're looking for? What am I missing?
