929rr chain question
OKay so i did a cleaning of my chain, and checked for the slack level.
I have a honda owners manual which says the chain slack should be from 40-50mm, which is 1 9/16" to 1 15/16 inch. I've read on many forums and experts saying that a good chain slack is around 1 - 1 1/4 inch?
Anyways, my chain slack is anywhere from a bit over 3/4 inch, to 1 1/4 inch. Is that okay? I checked if the chain is too worn out by pulling the chain on the back of the rear sprocket, and it looks good there, as in, too much sprocket teeth don't show.
The sprocket teeth also look good for now. They don't have the classic worn sprocket tooth look
Plus, I'd rather go with the slack that the actual owner's manual says, than the generic 1 - 1 1/4 inch rule.......and yes i know I'm not at the slack the owner's manual says haha. Basically what i'm saying is, I HOPE MY CHAIN ISN'T SHOT!!!
