Chain behind the clutch

I was having a look at my clutch and there is a small chain behind the assembly. I am assuming this is for the oil pump. How tight is it supposed to be? It seemed fairly loose, I can move it quite a bit with my finger.

Also, when taking out the clutch plates they seemed pretty dry. It's been a while since I've had a clutch out but I thought I remembered the plates being wet.

I had a look in both the e-manual and Haynes but couldn't find anything in regards to tension or service limit.



You'd have to think a bit of slack would be normal... https://www.triumph675.net/forum/sho...d.php?t=177178



Perhaps MacBandit can enlighten us.

I didn't see anything in the manual either about how tight the chain should be. the reason I took the clutch out was because I picked up some crazy hard vibration on the track last weekend and I thought it maybe something coming apart in the clutch. The clutch appears to be in really good shape but I did notice that chain was pretty loose. Not loose enough to skip teeth but may be loose enough to cause a vibration? I'm not sure, just wanted to ask the question.


As a side note I am replacing the drive chain and sprockets as they are pretty worn out and that may be where the vibration is coming from also.
