New Chain

As it's supposedly spring it seemed appropriate to make sure the Kanguro is ready fopr the road - I've neglected it a bit. The chain had worn a bit and the limit of adjustment on the swingarm reached.

So this time I've fitted the chain with 2 few links - this meant that the inital adjustment is close to the front and that the brake cable needed a lot of adjustment to get it right. Actually the lever is a lot lower now and will take some getting used to.

Unusually, on a Kanguro, the chain gets looser as the suspension is compressed and the bend around the chain roller reduced. For this reason I set the chain up to be pretty firm when the bike is on the centrestand. With a rider on board there's the usual 20mm of slack.
