unless you know the chain is new and just cut wrong you should really get a new chain. it's too long because it's worn

Lay the chain in the cogs and check for wear. Some places sell half links but it sounds like its stretched. If you put a new chain on it, be sure the sprockets arent worn as this is the biggest cause to rapid chain wear.

There are several versions of the 750 for that year, which model (exactly) do you have, and then we can know how many links the chain is suppose to have.

More than likely, it's simply stretched from use.
You should replace the chain AND the sprockets as an assembly.

agree 100%

check with your local dealer, Parts Unlimited has their own sprockets for alot of older bikes and they are cheaper than OEM

Hello, Depending on how many miles you have on the chain it may be out of limits, if it is workable you can take a link or two out using a chain breaker. Be sure to use a new masterlink and face it the right way(closed end rotating towards front) Shon
