    Chain slack

    I've got an 07 X4, and I was finally gonna hit the track this weekend. NOTHING crazy, but I was wondering how much slack to put in my chain, and where do you measure the slack. On the old KX's for example, I'd put my fingers behind the chain buffer, and allow threee fingers. Stock chain, broken in, and hasn't stretched too much. 200lbs, and stock shock. Thanks, Kelly in Rochester!
