Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

This week I reassembled my old motorized bicycle w/ China girl 2 stroke.
Because I have had 2 rear wheels severely damaged by chain tensioners I cut the chain shorter and installed it without a tensioner.
With the bike right side up I put the chain in place over the sprocket and then mount the wheel by sitting on the ground with my feet against the crankset and pull the wheel back hard while tightening the nuts with my other hand.
So far I have put about 80 miles on it and have re-tightened the chain by moving the wheel back 3 times.
This has all been experimental so far but I am getting close to just cranking that thing into place TIGHT and for good.
Q: smear some thread locking compound around?
