i mean, if it'll make both you and me happy, 90% of chains have tight spots?The tensioner isn't working well because of the angle of your engine. Answered in post 9
I don't give a crap about your chain or your problem.
You claimed that ALL chains have tight and loose spots.
I am claiming that chains should not have tight or loose spots. If there is then it is another problem.
I wasn't talking about a crap chain that has worn out.
Good luck with your chain issues.
if you ride motorcycles go to a bike meet or group ride and check the chain one every single bike, almost all have tight spots.
"I am claiming that chains should not have tight or loose spots. If there is then it is another problem"
well you keep calling it problem, i'm saying it aint. if you wanna change your motorcycle chain after 3000km because of a tight spot go right ahead.... i don't like wasting money so i'm still rocking a chain with 50k on it and tight spots and have zero issues...like most riders out there.
in a ideal world, i agree with you, it shouldn't be the case. but this real life and the fact of the matter is that almost every motorcycle rider will not bother spending hours/ lots of money on getting this perfect.
if it really is a problem like you say, why does pretty much every NEW bike develop the issue after just a few thousand km? surely if it was that easy the manufacturers would make sure the sprocket is perfectly round, the sprocket is perfectly centered and all the other stuff that causes tight spots....
if they're selling 200HP bikes that have this issue, what's the point in bothering getting it perfect on a 1hp chinesium bicycle kit....
