Default Re: Chain too tight

I wouldn't run it with the chain too tight. You can damage the wheel bearings and also the countershaft bearing.

Too tight is -0- freeplay. If you have at least a little bit of play you should be o.k. for now. It may loosen up a small amount, but better safe than sorry.
