Master Link Trouble
New motorcycle owner here and learning about wrenching. I have a background in working on bicycles (the ones you pedal) and some light auto maintenance. This forum paired with YouTube University and my Clymber book has been very helpful.
When I picked up my 95 (22,000-ish miles) a few weeks back I knew it has a slight oil leak. I thought maybe it was just the previous owner never riding it so I changed the oil and rode it a bunch. The leak just got worse so I changed the counter shaft seal, collar, and o-ring. The leak seems to be gone, a little more time and riding will tell.
However, when I got my chain all tensioned up it made a horrible clunk as it goes through the sprockets, pretty sure it didn't do it when I first bought it. I noticed it was only making noise as the master link goes around each sprocket. The chain and sprockets seems to be all in good shape, unknown millage on them though, they don't look like they are from 1995. I have my chain pretty loose now and it doesn't make a clunk any more but still doesn't go smoothy through the sprockets. Any thoughts? Thanks
