Hello all,



I'm riding around on a week-old XSR and the chain is badly slack already. (It obviously was not adjusted correctly in the first place because it's past 6 cm of slack.)



I went to adjust it but have now realized that unlike my previous bike I cannot access the axle nut with an adjustable wrench and need a socket.



Can anyone tell me what diameter socket I need to do this task?



Much obliged.

Same as the FZ/MT 07: 27mm. A breaker bar and a torque wrench also come in handy.

I had loads of slack on my chain after 500 miles, adjusted it, and 3500 miles later it's not needed another adjustment.
