Question about Suzuki RF 600 R Motorcycles
My chain went slack so i tightened it now i have to keep tightening it as the chain just hangs so low but my back wheel can go back no further to tighten the chain anymore and now the chain is sticking and making a horrible noise when i am driving
Sounds like the chain is worn out and needs replacing if there is no more adjustment!
A good idea is to replace the sprockets at the same time, as they wear along with the chain, and will cause a new chain to wear out sooner.

Hi,I know that chains and sprokets are not cheep,but you should never let your chain get so worn out before replaceing it,just becouse you can take the slack up in the chain by moving the wheel back dose not mean that the chain is still ok,
when you buy your nexst chain it should have a miledge when it should be replaced,(if its not on the box ask the sales man in the shop)the reson it so bad to let the chain get so worn like this is becouce,when it brakes it can couse damidge to the side caseing and may even rap around the back wheel,
also when you buy the chain you should always replace the sprokets at the same time so that they wear together,a new chain on old sprokets will just wear the new chain out quicker.
and you can also get exspensive chains or cheap chains,if you can afford it buy the dearer one so it last longer(better quality)
myself havent got alot of money but always buy one thats priced in the middle,hope this was some help.
all the best.

SOURCE: i need to tighten my chain
Look at the rear axle. There should be marks on both sides indicating where the axle is in relation to the swingarm. Note the position of the axle, then loosen the axle. There MAY be chain adjusters at the back end of the swingarm, but not all bikes have those. If yours does, as you look at the swingarm from the rear of the bike you will see two adjustment bolts. Tighten those up, and make sure you keep the axle position indicators the same on both sides. Your chain should have 1-2 inches of slack as you lift and press down on the middle of the longest run of the chain. Often there is a sticker on the swingarm that tells you how much slack is acceptable, do as the sticker says if it is there.
