Question about 2005 Suzuki GS 500 E
Hi there I am the proud new owner of a suzuki gs 500 and I wondered how tight the chain is supposed to be?
The drive chain for your motorcycle should have no more than a 1/2 of play in it. Place the chain with the motor shut off between your thumb and fore finger. if you can move it up or down anymore than a 1/2, then you'll need to tighten it. Adjust both sides of the chain tensioner equally, and you should be set.
