Someone posted about pulling a chain at 3 o'clock position and not being able to see thru the sprocket. IIRC, someone else talked about "side to side" wiggle on the rear under load @ 3 o'clock.
Can anyone give some real numbers? I just cleaned and oiled and adjusted mine, she was way out of adjustment.
How often do you have to adjust you chain? Seems like it should be only after it's worn quite a bit, but I'm adjusting mine about every time I oil.
Yes about 3 o'clock pull and not able to see through.
I think a side to side slop check is better done under no load, and very distinct movement means excessive wear and/or mismatched chain/sprocket widths.
The only "numbers" I have ever seen are chain stretch based, and the other thread you referred to had numbers in it.
If you have to adjust at every lube, and you lube frequency is short, let's say anything at or below 500 miles, screams out to me a list of possible ills:
Rear wheel movement in the slots.
Fast degrading chain and / or sprocket(s).
Loss of lube from wet riding (another poor lube element)
Your later post in this thread about 3/4 inch droop adjustment being needed to me is more suggestive of rear wheel movement than wear.
But if it is from accelerated (very rapid) wear, I suggest that disaster looms.
Hopefully this helps you along.
