Default Re: Chain tension problem

For the price of the kit I think the quality is quite acceptable. I could have bolted the engine on and had the bike running the next day but a couple of things slowed me down. Mainly the garage is pretty cold the past couple weeks so I only work on the kit an hour or so in the late afternoon when it gets a bit warmer in there. The other thing is I get kind persnickity about how things work. The two remaining things I have to do are to figure out and correct the cause of the chain tension varying and the other is a simple job of getting out the acetylene torch and reshaping the exhaust pipe above the muffler so it clears the bike frame and crank arm. I'm in no hurry, when the winter weather is nice I get the urge to take the Silverwing or Goldwing out to keep them limbered up.
