Default Re: Can someone please take a look at my pics...make sure all is alright

You asked so here is some constructive criticism:

Your chain looks loose. You'll want 1/2 to 3/4" slack no more no less. Also you really need to assure that the tensioner wheel bracket is secure and can not rotate on the chain stay. That will cause you big/expensive and possibly dangerous problems.

Your clutch cable looks as if it is secured tightly to the frame in several places. That can increase clutch lever pull.

Remove and discard the small spring on your clutch cable between the end of the cable and the clutch actuator arm. It serves no useful purpose and will increase clutch lever pull.

Good luck. Have fun and ride safe.
