My Desert Sled has 9,200 miles on it. A few days ago I had someone adjust the chain, as it had excessive slack. Once re-adjusted it had the required play, all good as it always is with this. I get to my house 6 miles away, and notice the chain had become really taut, evidently rear axle nut was not tightened to spec, and wheel slid backwards causing tension on chain. I took it back in a flat bed, not wanting to risk it. Process repeated, this time correctly. Have put on the bike 60-70 miles after that, no problems. I've also inspected the whole chain, and cannot detect any damage, but hey, what do I know!

Measuring the links to see if chain is in spec seems the best way to rule out chain needs to be replaced. Trouble is I cannot find in the manual the length I need to look for in order to make this determination.

Any leads on this will be appreciated,
