Chain Adjustment Tool

Hi all,

I need to adjust the tension of my chain on my 2001 F4 750 for the first time.

Is it the tool numbered 92854 which I need to use?

If not, I'm screwed and don't have the right tool!


Cheers


Rich

Wink torque/

Rich;
be sure to use a torque wrench on the pinch bolts......the spec is 28-32Nm......read the Mitchy's new hub thread......

I have 2 of Mitch's hubs and i use less than the Factory spec'd torque, the hubs are bulletproof

Does anyone know the size of the heads on the rear wheel hub?

I don't have a allen key head large enough.

10mm Allen key, and make sure you get the chain tension right, rather too slack than too tight and don't overtighten the pinch bolts. Download the manual here for free http://my.agusta.us/ .

Instead of hustling up a C spanner you can tap the notches on the adjuster with a piece of hardwood. Works just as well. Don't use friggin metal, not even brass or you'll goober the notches.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

B*llocks!! The pinch bolt has snapped while I was tightening it! I had the torque wrench set to 28Nm!
