Ok, so I took everyone's suggestion to go ahead and let a dealer do the 600 mile first check up (although it was at 1,200 miles - and no, I didn't go that long without a 1st oil change - I changed the oil at 500 myself). But I digress. Here's my question. When they were done, I checked the chain and it was not adjusted which perplexed me because I thought it was particularly loose. It had about 1-1/2" of play. When I asked the head tech about it, he said that it should be that way and that V-stroms should have a bit more slack in the chain than other bikes due to it's long swing arm. So, is he correct? Do you guys agree?
