        Got it back together and back on the road today
        some minor adjustments here and there, and it will be road worthy.

                Actually on the chain, it looks pretty close to correct since the bike is on the centerstand. If you have 2 people sit on the seat and recheck it you will find it to be rather tight, the Hawk geometery gets very tight about an inch before you bottom out and if the chain is not loose enough then it will prevent full suspension travel and cause a huge amount of stress on the output shaft and the chain itself when you hit a good size bump.

                  How did you polish the speedo plate, I thought is was made out of plastic?

                    Nope..the housing is, but the plate is metal. When i wrecked last yr the thing practically exploded and ripped into a couple peices..But, it is metal.

                        Some Hawks have a metal plate, some don't. I think it depends on the year.
