Default Re: New Staton axle mounted kits

I've got well over 1000 miles on my rack mount chain drive Staton and the gearbox sounds just like it always did. I can hear the gearbox but it definitely isn't loud. The only time it gets loud is when the chain is too tight. Staton says to have 1/8" of slack in the chain, that's a joke, when the chain is that tight the gearbox whines something fierce and the little R/S engine has almost no power. Chain slack is perfect when there's about 1" or slightly more at the tight spot.
