If you are maxed out on your adjustment,you will have to take a link out of the chain.Best thing to do is count the links on your old chain.Scott.

Don't assume the new one is the same length just because you ordered it the same.Physically count the links again just to be sure.If they are the same amount of links,you should have no problems.Are you sure you loosened all the pinch bolts enough?I've noticed when i do my son's chain,i loosen them once and then go back thru them again and the first one that i loosened is tight again.So make sure you loosen them a couple times.I'm not trying to bust your balls,just tryin to help.When you have problems with something it's easy to overlook stuff.Good luck.Scott.

When you try to tighten it,I know you can,t get it to tighten up but will it go the other way where it is extremely loose.If it will, i would take one link out and try again.Hope ya get it goin.Scott.
