Question about 2005 Husaberg FC 550
Make sure both wheels are on the ground use a triangle or have someone balance the bike(standing beside it not on it) and then adjust the chain and have about 2 incehes of play. Make sure u get both sides.,,

SOURCE: chain needs to be 1/4
1/4" is too tight, you should have one inch minimum. Check it while the bike is upright sitting on the tires. Move the longest part of the chain up and down and you should have one to one and a half inches of play.
As a comparison, my BMW 650 has seven inches of suspension travel at the rear and my spec is 45 to 55mm which is about an inch and 3/4 to two inches.

These are the instructions for adjusting the chain. They are taken directly from the manual available at http://ep.yimg.com/ty/cdn/razorama/e100e200e300manual.pdf
To adjust the chain:
1. Loosen the axle
2. Loosen the brake anchor (this is attached with the small bolt in the long slot on the left side of the rear fork)
3. Tighten the tension adjusters on the axle 1/8 to 1/4 turn to tension the chain. Tighten both adjusters the exact same amount to maintain the wheel alignment.
Note: this system of adjusters is common to motorcycles and BMX
bicycles so I your are not familiar with it, if you know anyone who is,
they would not have a problem adjusting it for you.
Chain tension: The chain should be "just not-quite snug" in other
words, not taut or sloppy loose. BE CAREFUL NOT TO ADJUST TOO TIGHT. The tensioning system can easily impart too much tension and snap the chain or bend the motor output shaft. Turn the adjusters 1/8 to 1/4 turn at a time and recheck the tension each time.
4. Once the tension is good, tighten the axle and brake anchor bolt. Test run the scooter. Readjust as needed.
