cg125[1] getting stretch excessively

  1. dear ukrm
    new triple S HD chain at 18,000 and JT sprockets (front and rear). Kept
    well lubed regularly with DX11, not overtightened leaving approx 1 3/4
    cm play throughout the chain. I expected it to stretch a little to begin
    with but in just over 2000 miles I've got to the end of the thread on
    the tension adjustment bolts (when I acquired the machine at 17,600
    miles the previous chain and sprockets appeared to be the originals). I
    am about to go and take a link out but am a little paranoid something
    might be going wrong to cause this. Lets be honest 11.something horses
    pulling at a 'HD' chain for a couple of thousand miles shouldn't cause
    this much stretch??

    Also, is anyone else's clutch cable outer (its not just I'm a muppet
    who's got it done up too tight) so short that when turning left
    approaching full lock the cable gets so tight it causes the clutch to slip?

    thanks in advance and thanks for all your previous help about number
    plates, speedos, sticking brakes etc too!
