my 06 had two screws and a clip holding it. with the clip you just push the center in and you'll see how it separates once you do that. and with the screws the one hiding behind the sprocket was a bit of a pita to get to but nothing crazy.

lol. roll the bike until it gives you the best opening at it. it wasn't a straight shot but enough to grab a bite out of the screw.

I had to pull the tire off... FYI, you will get chain lube/wax on your gear... I threw mine back on cause i bought a white jacket.

I've noticed. I took mine off last week. I cleaned the bike off yesterday and if this becomes a weekly thing or more it's going back on.

No, its simple... Eaasier with 4 hands but can easily be done with 2. The first time is a pain buit after that its cake. Its something thats good to know regardless how to do.

I used the long end and came in from the other side of the bike. it was a pita working with both hands between the wheel spokes, I was only able to turn the screw like 1/10th each time I was able to get a bite on it.

Lube your chain after your ride, let sit for a couple hours, after that take a rag with WD40 sprayed on in and then spin your chain trough the rag several passes...you might see some over spray of chain lube but not much.... the key is to lube your chain after a ride...:)

That helps, but does not solve the problem. I always wax my chain after a ride and let it sit over night, i still got spots on my new jacket which i wasnt happy about.

If you use WD40 or any lube that shit flies right off, its much better to use wax that way it can seat into your o-rings etc.

Use a tape measure and the lines on the adjuster to get both sides in sync and make sure your chain has the right tension. It will get tighter once you set it down and tighten the rear axle all the way. The owners manual spells it out pretty well.

WD40 is not good for the O-Rings anyways. Use Kerosene to clean then buy that stuff they sell at Yamaha in the can and spray on. It doesn't fly up on me.
