Is that chain too tight?

[QUOTE=BOB RAMSAY;18563104]I have a '06 950. 19k miles and the sprockets look fine - so far.

I'm just curious how many miles some of you inmates are getting on their sprockets.

By reading the preceding comments (lube - no lube - gear oil, etc.) I don't see anyone getting 20k or more miles - I'm a 19k and the whole package looks great - dirty perhaps, but far from being worn out.

Which opens the other can of worms in this equation but not mentioned -
an improperly adjusted chain will wear out the whole kit.
I've always ascribed to: looser is perhaps a better position than a chain adjusted to tightly.

What say guys?
I'll take Heaven for the climate - Hell for the company.
