Default Re: Chain tension problem

I was just wondering how you measured the sprocket to find out it is centered? From the center hole?, tips of the teeth??
Because I have seen many sprockets that have the center hole not quite centered, & on other sprockets the tips of the teeth are uneven!!

The way I mount the stock sprockets these days is to wrap the sprocket with 44 links of chain & then spin it to center it off the chain!!

& to be very honest with you, If you only have 1/2" of difference in play in your chain? You did a very good job!
