Best way to do it is in a garage with exposed rafters to hang the front of the frame from while holding the rear up with a rear stand. Once you're ready to take off the swingarm, put jack stands...

Over-tightening probably wouldn't cause a noise. I've found over-tightened chains make no noise, and in fact the bike runs great, right up until the chain snaps and you lose the motor. Any noise you...

Decided to chase points this season and they’re no longer supersport legal in our club. It’s not enough of a power gain to risk being protested and found cheating.

I swore off all K&N filters after I had one fail on my Honda, fortunately at low speed and I kept it up. It wasn’t covered in the recall. Not worth your life, get something reliable.
