OK have adjuster my chain last week and its not quiet rite.the offside mark is in line with the exhaust so a bit hard to see. and as its 4 years old the marks aren't that clear anyway.
so have measured the thread on the adjuster bolts and 1 is 1mm small the the other can i work it out by the thread showing.

Hi James

I generally use a steel rule to measure the amount of thread showing from the adjusters.

Make sure they are of equal length then tighten the axle off, the graduation marks on the swing arm are not accuate enough and on mine are not showing on the one side.
