I've come to the conclusion I keep my chain too tight. Do you think that could create extra ware on the sprocket????

Yes, It can also damage your engine output shaft from it being pulled on it everytime your suspension compresses.

also too a tight chain limits the suspension travel..meaning the some tention is getting into your chain..and not the shock...so bad and double bad.

Brian, you should have about 1.5~1.9" of travel in the chain when it's adjusted correctly. I know it seems like a lot, but the guysare right about it causing excessive wear on your drivetrain components.
