Hi, Just to let you know, I bought a new 2002 MV and adjusted the chain about the 4 or 500 mile mark and again around 1,000. It is normal for a new chain to strech. Kevin Orlando.

This is probably not unusual. Ensure you are measuring slack right though.

Another contributing factor on these is that they use 520 chains, which are smaller than the mostly standard 530. This means they may stretch just a bit more.
