Default Re: Tools and tips needed for assembling Motorized Bicycle kits

that's a good thing since the sprocket will jerk just a bit forward and backward as the engine fires - touching those spokes will rub thru them after a while

use the rubbers and you'll get a nice, smooth cush-drive effect back there

all bolts should be centered thru the nine small triangles formed by the spokes

with all nine bolts in, first tighten just the three that are in the centers of the three mounting plates and get the up/down to be centered, once there, you can pull in the wobble with the bolts

tip: when doing up/down, if you put an old drill bit between 2 sprocket teeth so it sticks up a bit higher than the tooth tips, you can then smack it with a hammer to push it into place
