    So i was tightening my chain and as shown on the picture below, the bolt that you loosen to adjust the tightness of the chain stripped on one side.. Anyone have this problem? ive tried using a smaller wrench to try and get it to fit but no luck and ive never ran into this so im not sure how to go about fixin it, ideas?:confused:

    You mean you rounded the head or stripped the threads? Sounds like you rounded the head. Are the threads in the swingarm messed up? Go get a new bolt at the dealer. Remember, you should have about 1" to 1.5" of play in the chain when sitting on the bike. You always check it when sitting on it.

    Maybe a small pair of vise grips and some patience. And definitely antiseize the new one.
