    Having studied the workshop manual, it would appear Triumph do not quote wear specs for this chain, must admit when I rebuilt my TT600 engine I thought it a bit sloppy, I would suggest close inspection for damaged links, nicks etc, if still in doubt replace it for peace of mind, I checked mine visually, no sign of damage or excessive wear, so refitted it during the rebuild, touchwood, I've had no problems. I am curious as to what has led you to this point.

    OK thankyou for your help,
    I have checked for damage etc. And all looks good it's just very loose, I am trying to find the source of a rattle and I replaced the clutch and clutch basket and the chain sits right behind the clutch basket, I just wiggled it out of curiosity and found it was very loose
