Chain adjustment on centre stand or is paddock stand required?
« on: January 22, 2018, 01:35:23 AM »
Saw a Youtube video suggesting to always adjust chain using a paddock stand.
What to you guys think? Is it OK to adjust when on centre stand or do I need to get a paddock stand?
Cheers

You need some weight on the bike to get the correct adjustment so side stand or a paddock stand is alright but the centre stand gives to much slack for the adjustment and will cause you to over adjust the chain for when it has weight back on making it too tight, I only use my centre stand 1-2 times a year and that's only when giving the chain a good clean or taking out the rear wheel
