Chain adjustment on Banshee

What a joke! Ive always owned Hondas in the past, i got this Banshee a year ago, and i love it, but this chain adjustment, is terribly questionable.

Maybe my set up is damaged and does not function properly. It seems as though, while trying to line up the index marks(even that is mystirious) the adjusters move and will not stay put while tightening. I have a Clymers manual, and im just not sure ive got it right as far as indexing. Ive got the chain slack set, i just want to make sure my axle is perpandicular to the frame, so it will track straight.

Re: Chain adjustment on Banshee

I thought that the axle would straighten itself out perpendicular to the swingarm once you tightened the two bolts?

If anyones interested, you cant fit a 13/43 tooth sprocket combo without a longer chain. I tried last night, and it wouldnt go on.

Cleartoy, The best way to make sure it is straight is to measure from front axle to back axle. At least it will be straight according to the axles. I hope that helps...Doing it this way has defenitely made it easier and my chain has always stayed straight on my other 4 wheelers I had.
