It seems like the chain stretches out easily causing too much chain slack. I've had to adjust my chain slack 3 times in 3500 miles. The first time I checked it was when I did the 600 mile service and there was a lot chain slack... I thought maybe the dealer didn't have it set correctly when they sold it to me. But when I checked it 1000 miles later it had 10mm too much slack.
