braking before turning: chain slap

Rear braking before the turn, I hear the chain noise: Tack-Tack-Tack. Is this normal for a propery adjusted chain?

Some such noise is normal, as it is when you're under power at lower engine speeds, too. The chain should be adjusted to 1 5/8" to 1 3/4" play with the bike on a stand.

Make sure your slider iis in good shape.
