Default Re: Im confused about all the chain tensioner problems

Good advice and as always, correct. The problem is that newbies won't see it until its too late and they're replacing rear wheels or spokes. Its really too bad that the suppliers of the 2 stroke kits do not heed this advice and include it in the kits that they sell. Better yet, that a newcomer do some reading and research before attempting to ride their bike for the first time. Without a doubt, the chain tensioner/rag joint/sprocket alignment issue is the biggest shortcoming with the Chines 2 stroke engine kits. I'll take this opportunity to challenge all of our sponsors who sell the kits to take the advice of the experienced builders here and provide it to their customers. I'll go so far as to offer to write the information which you, as vendors can copy and place in each kit you sell. If anyone else wants to volunteer to do this let me know or maybe we can collaborate on this project. Vendors, sponsors??? Any response from you?
