I've got 1500 miles on the FZ and I recently adjusted and lubed the chain, now I notice a slight whine when I coast. Anyone notice it also? The marks on the chain adjustment are aligned perfectly.
Whats the string method? I tightened the adjusters on each side the same about 1 full turn but after a long ride, the one on the right side was a hair loose so I had to tweak it a 1/4 turn to tighten it up against the washer.arnoha said:The adjustment marks on the FZ-6 suck, big time. Don't trust them. I use the string method to get a much better alignment, then just be sure to turn the adjusters exactly the same amount when adjusting slack.
Also, the specs indicate that chain should measure about 2" slack when on the centerstand.
You said in an earlier post that the new sprocket you added was different from the stock one you took off.Cavi said:mine also whines while coasting, and it is worse after I added my 15 tooth sprocket, but the benifits of the sprocket far overway the noise.
