Tried to adjust my chain today , but couldn't find a socket big enough to slacken the wheel axle nut so need to buy one.
Looks like 36mm, can anyone confirm?
Thanks

Just been up halfrauds and got a 36 mm socket. Cant believe I need to adjust the chain already, It was adjusted at 600 miles first service and just done it now at 900 miles. Hopefully it will stay adjusted for more than 300 miles at a time from now on

Gonna keep an eye on it and record mileage between adjustments, if I have to do it too often I will argue "fit for Purpose" under warranty.
Had a Gsr 600 which had a bit of a caning and only had to adjust once a year at service

Can't understand why Suzuki didn't put a 530 chain on with the kind of power this bike produces !!

It did'n matter if 525 or 530.
Most race bike (over 200 hp and motogp also) use a 520 chain.
The problem is the quality and not the size.
And with 525 on our bike less power lost than 530 ;)
