I've just adjusted my chain to the 70mm on the centrestand and confirmed that there's about 40mm deflection on the sidestand. This is unloaded.

So I've hurled on two packed Zega panniers and a 10kg drybag and sat on it but I can only move the chain maybe 1.0-1.5cms with my finger. Is this too tight or should I loosen it off a bit?

On other trips I've usually had it a bit looser, but I was just trying out the tips from previous posts on the site here which say that 70mm on the centrestand should mean it's fine fully loaded, but 1.5cms play seems a bit too little to me.

Curses, so the other guides were wrong then :( Dammit, no time now and I've to hit the road at 5.30am and do 150miles to the ferry port, hopefully I'll get a chance to readjust it there, or I'll do it once off the boat. Thanks for that :thumbleft:
