Need help tightening chain... - June 24, 2010, 02:48 PM

I'm in need of some help getting my chain tightened on my bike. I was trying to do the work myself but was unable to get it completed. I would greatly appreciate any help that can be given. I live in Round Hill, VA and if you're not too far I can drive the bike to you of course. But not trying to ride too far considering how loose the chain is.

Thanx fam!!

if there is room, move the wheel back and make sure you move the adjusters accordingly and evenly.

If you are at the end of the swingarm, it's time for a new chain. Don't run 2 master links in one chain.

on the internet you can be anyone you want, it's strange that so many people choose to be so stupid

I do still need help. I'm a give Lucky a call today. But he's kinda far from me and I don't wanna drive it that far wit the chain being loose. If he can't help i could definitely use your help elements. Round Hill is bout 20 min west of Leesburg.

@Hollywood: Thanx for the advice. But I'd feel more comfortable wit someones help considering that I'm a noob.
