ChainTroubles

So I did a driven 520 -1 +2 upgrade a few weeks ago and have noticed that I have to adjust my chain after almost every ride. I know that this is normal at first but I've never had to do it this much for ths long. Everything is in it's correct place and axle nuts are at the proper torque...... I'm stumped

chain+sprox replaced as a set?

sometimes when you mix/match you will just cause accelerated wear to your chain......which can go rapidly after a few hundred miles.....

also arent driven rear sprox Aluminum?

yeah it can take a while for the chain to fully stretch out...

last time i needed 3x adjust it to get proper slack/tight.

took about a 1000 miles.

DID erv/superlight steel sprox.

Yea just keep an eye on it after every ride or so. I just replaced mine in June (Superlite sprockets -1front) but have no issues although I only ride about once a week.

how often do you ride and how many miles average per ride?

Shouldn't stretch that much, seriously. One adjustment should do it.

I'm in this boat but I just adjusted it to spec and torqued everything and I swear it gets loose daily... I ride 200+a day and its a DiD chain but don't know how old so I'll be swapping it soon....

I ride about 100-200 miles a week.... I noticed I've also been getting a lot of brake dust... I'm going to break it down tomorrow and recheck everything. It's a RK chain so quality isn't to bad. I with you guys on it being adjusted to much. My last sprocket/chain change didn't need this much adjustment either....
