Re: how to I properly adjust my chain?
Engage the clutch, roll the bike forward easily until the bottom chain run is tight then measure the slack on the top of the chain about mid way between the two sprockets.
1/2 to 3/4" slack (up and down movement) is what you're looking for.
I hope that helps. Good luck.
