Chain adjustment markings?

Hey everyone. I tried adjusting the chain on the 929 last night, for the first time, and I'm a little confused.

I followed the instructions in the manual, and it seems quite simple really. The only problem is, I'm not sure if I have the rear aligned properly, and I don't know how to make sure of that.

The manuals all say that I have to line up the index marking on the wheel with the markings on both sides of the swingarm. I have very clear markings on both sides of the swingarm, but I only seem to have an index marking on one side of the wheel. On the right side, where the axle nut goes, there is a very clear arrow/marking that I can line up with the notches in the swingarm. However, on the left side, there are markings on the swingarm, but no arrow/marking/index on the wheel nut. Looks round and smooth to me... Unfortunately I don't have a pic to show you guys.

Is it unheard of that there is no marking or the marking has been worn down or something to that effect? In the absence of a marking on that side, should I assume that the center of the hub/axle should be lined up with the correct marking on the swingarm? How else can I ensure that I have the right alignment? I don't want to be out of alignment. It will disturb me greatly on a spiritual level.

Any tricks or tips would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Chain adjustment markings?

Awesome. I was wondering if the t-edge type measurement would result in the correct alignment.

Fireblades.org rocks, again.

Thanks guys.
