1) i took my left cover off yesterday to give it all a wipe and i noticed that my condenser is a bit dented from contacting my chain. how do i tighten the chain so that it doen't bounce around so much? i know that it needs some play, mine moves about 1-1 1/2" from all the way up to all the way down.
2) how important are the accordian-style rubber boots on the top half of the front forks? i think that the bike would look better without them, but if they are functional i'll leave them on there.
