Consequently we recommend bending/twisting the bracket to bring the wheel in alignment with the chain. If your tensioner is installed now simply sight down the chain run from rear to the front and you'll probably be able to see what I'm talking about.
We need to do a picture tutorial on this because it's not easy to explain briefly and a photo or two would certainly help. Anyone want to volunteer?
i would but luckily for me i didn't have that problem (possibly because of the mod i had already done?)
