During my ride today I noticed that my chain got tighter as the ride went on. Anyone know the cause/fix? I havent looked at it closely yet. You'd think it would be the swingarm bolt. Chain roller is also making more noise. Please help. Thanks, Rob

So you guys are saying that the bolts are too tight? That would might make the chain come loose not tight right?

When I adjusted my chain i had to roll it forward to tighten it up, so I would say it's probable the carrier twisted forward causing your chain to tighten up.

I found the problem. I must have hit something hard enough to shift my swingarm skid plate so that it was pressing against the chain. It made it super tight. All is better.
