I would suggest running the chain pretty loose. Alot looser than 1/2″. Early this year when I was new to the scene, i was conscious about how loose the chain was. I tried to keep it pretty tight; for some reason I thought that running it loose was bad until I pulled my engine’s main bearings from it being too tight. Now I run about 1 1/4″ of slack and my chains last alot longer and seem to run cooler.
