After the first few miles on a new chain, it does not stretch. If kept lubed, it will run 20,000 miles or more. then it begins to wear and gets loose. this is the sign of a dying chain. A simple spray with an aerosol lube every two tanks of gas...every tank in the wet or grit...does the job.
A Strom isn't the refined bike like an ST or a wing. it is cheaper, lighter, a lot of fun, and very reliable. Expect to spend a little time and money to make it best fit YOU.
