... There is always a tight spot - Why ...

I assume (just a guess) it is because rear sprocket is not totally concentric with the rear axle spindle.
Possibly some slack in the alignment of fasteners so slightly eccentric.

Yeah & isn't it a pain. I find myself setting the tension at the tight spot but the other end can still be towards the end of the tension limits. Oh well. save up for a none chain driven bike. No crwaling around on hands and knees measuring & turning one or two faces on the nut to pull wheel back. Getting too old for this :033:

Tight/loose spots more'n a few mm different, sign chain's tired. I set at 40-45mm slack & never need touch it again 'til it's on way out. All my other Trumpies with 530 chains, got 30k'ish. Me T800 only done 13k chain still as new, dunno if 525 lasts same.
