hi all.
do you have the same problem as me in not having good markers on each side of the
swinging arm while trying to ajust the chain.
I can not tell weather the chain is near its last adjustment or not.
is there any other way of telling when your chain is on its last adjustment?
I would be greatfull for any advice.
Bones.. :300:

With the bike on the stand, pull on the chain on the rear sprocket at the center (axle height).  If the play is <1/4 inch you are good, if >1/2 inch the chain is too stretched.  Between 1/4 and 1/2 inch is owners choice in the evaluation.  I tend to change at 3/8 inch, myself.

Conversely, my OEM chain has over 16K miles and is still tight on the rear sprocket.  ATF applied frequently does well.
