All the books I have tell me how to adjust my primary chain when hot. Can anyone tell me what sort of adjustment is required when cold so I can get the bike running and re-check when hot please

It's never given me a problem! I suppose a bit looser when cold as the engine must "grow" when hot? The primary chain lasts for an incredible mileage if oiled and tensioned. Iv'e been nearly "round the clock" on one!
