My guess is others have solved this before so I'll scan the archives ....... I still can't get over how much fun these lil' china girls are!
If you chewing up the idler after 4 or 5 miles you better check your aligment. I have 250 miles on mine and it still looks good. I do perfer the upgraded one with the bearing but be careful not to over tighten like I did and strip the threads or it will lool like this.
