So I have adjusted the chain and now during inspection, while i roll the bike, at one point the chain is extremely tight and as I continue to roll the chain loosens. What is the problem?
2001 Honda Shadow
It's binding in one or more places - to get around the front sprocket, the chain has to flex quite sharply to get around the corner - your chain doesn't want to do that, is resisting the bend, and as a consequence it's making the chain look tight temporarily. When that grumpy length of chain is in a straight line, between sprockets, the chain suddenly looks loose again.
How old is the chain? Could be a kink somewhere or worn out. I would roll it around and inspect for kinks or missing o-rings. If you roll it to the tightest spot and adjust it, will it be way too loose in the other spot? If so, and you don't see anything obvious, it may be time to replace.
No idea how old it is, but the p/o is my brother's brother-in-law, i'll find out about that tomorrow. I've got a 8 mile ride home, is it safe to ride like it is? There's nothing more I can do for it tonight.
