Chain Tension Inspection
Check the amount of chain slack by moving the
vehicle slightly forward to remove slack at the top
side of the chain.
NOTE: The chain has a press-on master link. A chain
tool must be used if it's necessary to remove
the chain for service.
Never adjust or operate the vehicle with the rear drive chain too loose or too tight. Severe damage
to the transmission and drive components can result. Chain tension must be inspected with the
swing arm in the position shown in the illustration so that the axle, swing arm pivot and drive
sprocket are aligned horizontally (2).
