I was looking at doing a little chain tightning and started with trying to loosen the pinch bolts on the rear of the swingarm. These things won't budge. are they on that tight? is there a "trick" or should I just give a little(lot) more umph.
BTW, my chain is around 36mm slack.
Thanks.

I also broke an extention before getting them loose. The slack, as little as it seemed was noticed in low speed at low rpm's where it felt like I was getting to weird of a lurching when I accelerated, plus it just bugged me.
