Question about 1987 Honda CBX 250
I adjusted the chain on my cbx250 a few days ago and now, at low revs in low gear (1st and 2nd) I can hear a sort of slapping noise... yet the chain seems to be okay; about 1.5 - 2 inches play...
Have I adjusted this chain correctly? Grateful for any advice you can give me. Thank you.
Honda owners manual chain adjustment should be 5/8'' to 1''

Hi there,,1,5, to two inches is correct,, is that all the way round by the way, sometimes u can have a tight spot,,it seems correct sometimes wen adjusted in one position,, but spin the rear wheel round it will either slacken quite a bit,, or go very tight,with no play in it,,,your cush drive rubbers behind the rear sprocket housing on the wheel,, may have a bit of wear in it,, or the chain haz a stiff link in the line,, and needs more oiling,, if the chain is dry ,and right now in salty conditions it will be, then that will cause chain slap,,,
