    The maniual say's 10mm to 20mm at the longest point

    I lined my front sprocket ,front swingarm pivot point and rear axle up to make that the shortest point of the chain, and i gave it 10mm up/down total, when i let the bike suspension settle it has 20mm play, 10mm up, 10mm down

    so I took the cover of the front sprocket and the front sprocket can be wriggled from side to side. do I just chuck it in gear and give it a tighten?

    No ... take it off ... it looks shot to me and I cant see a locking tab on there .. and u should check the spline also .. look to see how many teeth is stamped on it as u want standard gearing on it ..... both sprockets and chain should be replaced all at once

    so finally got this thing back together. put the old chain back on and took it for a strop up the road goes well but the carbs definitely need attention so that's the next mission. 20180915_125721.jpg

    I have an old 3LN Overflow coolant tank I have cleaned out.. it is easy to hang up high out of the road and the outlet is the right size for fuel line.
    There are specific plastic tanks out there that are not too dear, but I this as the last piece of the FZR parts I had...
