loosen the big bolt that look like a dirt bike wheel one and on each side there are cams with numbers 10 15 20 25 push on those until you get 3/4inch loose up and down. That take about 5 min.

If you have a new chain put it on snug and run hard a couple of minutes and check it. It usually will stretch and be perfect for you. It takes a 24mm socket or wrench to loosen or tighten the rear adjustment bolt.

move it to the adjustment as tight as you can with your hand on the cantelever, then go back 1 notch and itll be 3/4" of play.if i would have seen this thread earlier i would have done a write up for you because i did my 13t about 3 hours ago.

What pins are you talking about? You just loosen the big bolt and nut(like a dirt bike) and move the adjusters. Its that simple. I did not remove anything. Just make sure that the adjusters are set to the same degree.

When you move the cambers tho, make sure they match up, as in both are 15 and 15, or 20 and 20. There are no pins, unless you are talking about the pins that the cams go around (the pins that indicate what position you are in) and they stay there. You may need a rubber mallet to move the cams.

Yes, you want the same on both sides. If you cant get one as high as the other, back off on the other one 1 degree. If you have them different, then your rear sprocket will not be lined up completly with the front sprocket. Just tap it w/ a rubber mallet if needed, and make sure the ass end is off the ground.

Ass end of the ground.....it does state to have the bike on the ground and level! Basically that's telling me all 4 wheels should be on the ground and no one sitting on the bike. I never adjusted my bike with the rear wheel/s off the ground.

I wouldn't see that it would matter since there is no swingarm on the XX.

How old is your bike, mine was set at 23 for a long time, just adjusted it to 25 this past weekend but I've been riding the Beast for awhile now. Do have the 13 sprocket.

You are right, it shouldn't matter when adjusting the chain....I was thinking of another machine LOL. But it could make it easier, cuz when you are moving the adjusters, it is moving the whole entire rear drive train, causing the nuckles to move....just trying to prove my point, LMAO. j/k, it shouldn't matter at all.

Now thinking of the geometry of our bike, guess that you're correct about having the wheels on/off the ground, shouldn't have no effect towards the adjustment. Thinking old school!!
