Question about 2008 Beta RR 250 M
I own a 1998 RR 400 and have been having a lot of problems with the chain slack. I do around 250 miles per week in all weathers. I adjust the chain every weekend but within 100 miles or so of adjusting it to the correct slack it is already 'stretching' to around 40-50mm of freeplay
Way outside the recomended slack (which is 20-30mm). Any suggestions as to what could be causing this? I am thinking there are two options: 1) the chain and sprockets are shot and need urgent replacement. 2) the rear axle bolt is shot and despite being tightened to the correct torque it is loosening as I ride. Has anybody got any advice on this? Any feedback is welcome. Adjust the chain to spec then mark the adjustment slider and the swingarm at a common piont on both sides of the wheel. Use a paintpen or steal some nail polish for this. Then see if the wheel moves as the chain slackens off when you ride. It sounds like your chain and sprockets are toast though.......,,
