Default Re: chain tension

thank you. I have a magna bike someone gave me with the kit. the rear tire is about all the way back I could try a little harder. i'm also thinking maybe I should buy a half link? I measured it and I think a half link would fit so I could cut an inside link and an outside link and use the half link and masterlink to connect an inside link and an outside link on the chain. but would that half link of slack matter so much or could I make up for that with a tensioner? im thinking of looking for springs and just modifying the stock tensioner too. would letting the clutch out slowly help with the chain whiplash from starting my motor?
