Default Re: Hello - New member and new motorized bicycle owner

Here's a couple of pix that will explain the muffler and tensioner brackets I use. MB's fix for the tensioner works too. What ever, consider using something at that point cause it can be a real mess if the tensioner gets into your spokes. You might also hear from guys who will tell you to do away with the tensioner altogether. That works but leaves you with precious little adjustment when you find it necessary to tighten your chain due to wear. I prefer the option of having some latitude where chain adjustment is concerned without removing links or relying on half links to get the tension right.
