The easy way out
I gave in to laziness and took my motorcycle to Mach 1 for a chain clean and tighten. Best 15 bucks and 20 minutes of my week! They were a little concerned that my chain had gotten so loose so quickly, but couldn't offer an explanation. The chain looks good, the sprockets are okay, and my rear axel isn't loose. Mystery!
I will ask for a new chain when I hit 12,000, which is only a few months away. 11,361 miles on my baby!
And I need new tires soon. Does the money ever stay in my grasp?
