Quick question for all of you out there widhing it would snow....
I have a '01 ZR600 EFI. Last year I tore the drive out of it (don't ask). Needless to say, I replaced the drive, bearings, seals, etc. i rode the rest of the year without issue. However, on my last ride, the chain case began to make a lot of noise. As you depressed the throttle, it sounded as if the chain was slapping against the side of the chain case. I stopped, and found there was no oil in the case. I remedied this problem, and headed home......needless to say there was no oil when I got home. At this point, I have replaced the drop case, cover, and bearing seals. My question is this.....when everything is re-installed, it appears that the chain is VERY loose on the sprockets. I have to screw the tensioner bolt in all the way to get it to become remotely tight. Can anyone tell me why this is so, or how loose the shain ought to be? Before screwing in the tensioner, the chain was actually sitting off the bottom of the driven sprocket.
Any help would be appreciated!
