Tightening the chain????
96 sportsman 400 4x4
I took it out on its first trip over the weekend with its new owner. I thought I'd run into a few problems more than likely considering the only riding it had been in during the last 10 years was around a field....and the last 2 years of that it hasnt been rode anywhere.
It ran great, lot better than I expected. Only problem I had, was the chain came off about 4 hours into the trip. We put it back on, only for it to come off again about 100 yards down the road, then again, then again. We noticed after the 2nd or 3rd time, that the chain had gotten a ton of slack in it, slack that wasnt there when we started.
So, again keep in mind i'm real new to this stuff. I'm as noob as a noob can be. How exactly do I go about tightening the chain up. Is there a tensioner somewhere, or something else I need to look for. And, is it common, that once the chain comes off the first time, will it have all that slack and continue to come off until tightenin it back up. Thanks again.
