You do not need to loosen the clamp bolts unless you need to adjust chain tension.

Sorry macmike you've lost me there mate :027: How would you get the rear wheel out without derailing the chain if it's anywhere near being correctly tensioned and not flapping about the tension would need releasing and that can only be done by undoing the axle clamp bolts. :002:

Ahh just re read your post Mike. I see what you mean-taking the axle out will release the chain tension. The thing I found though was that the wheel was easier to replace and line up when the tension was off the chain. Ultimately its whatever works best for you. :028:

Absolutely, but being a lazy bastard don't do any more than I have to.  :745: And it is a pain to re-align, especially for someone new to this sort of thing.

Usefull info here guys that clarifies a few things for me.  :828:

As I'll be fitting a new chain I will be rotating the chain adjuster forwards first before removing the axle.

If the chain tension is correct .. Before you do anything ... Make a note of where the alignment marks are positioned.

When refitting the wheel, just realign to the marks and retorque ... Job done.

I also take out the abs sensor, it’s only one extra bolt and there is a chance of damage when refitting the wheel.
