The chain is shot. The front sprocket is probably flat, too. If you say it was jumping teeth, that's generally because there aren't any. There is no master link on primary chains

Blltrdr: Mine is a 06 iron and the slipper is straight-up when I last noticed this past Summer...I've only had to adjust it once and that was for shits n grins....The deflection of the chain appears excessive but it would be good to know what year/model it is...Looks like the primary may have run out of fluid for awhile...The bottom of the cases tend to weep especially if over tighten after a fluid change and over time , well u know the drill....What drew me to the post was Uncle Ernie started it.....GM
Oh Magoo you done it again
