After my recent rebuild, I was reminded yesterday that the biggest cause of drive-shaft failure on the @T is over tightening the chain.
Was told not to tension as you would normally do for a sports bike and to make the adjustments whilst someone about the same weight, is sitting on the bike.
Is there a tread that's covered this procedure? Don't mean the actual tensioning but advice as to how much slack to leave in the chain when under load. If I leave the normal amount of slack whilst loaded, isn't the thing going to be flapping with nobody on board? What if I take a passenger, do I need to re-adjust for the extra weight?
With all the trouble I've had recently, I'm a bit paranoid about the drive shaft.
