I have a 2006 R6s and I noticed that my chain looks a little loose. I am not really sure how much play I am supposed to have in the chain and what teh propper torque spec is when I adjust the chain

If I'm not mistaken. My manual (for my 04) says 85 LBS. Your's should be VERY close to that if not the same.

i really need to get a torque wrench..

"really tight" seems to work for me. the bolt has a lock on it just incase
tighten it if you dont have a torque wrench, and then check it after a few rides

yeah... another thing that I ALWAYS do when I put that axle nut back on is...

Apply some BLUE loctite. That stuff is GREAT.

Hey man like it was said before around 80 ft/lb for the axle nut. Your should have around 1.5" of slack in your chain. I'ts better to have your chain to loose than to tight.

80lbs per foot on my 05.

the chain should be slack enough to just barely touch the chain guard on the underneath part near where the kickstand heal part is. i know, horrible discription

once you get on the bike, the chain will tighten.
