Default Re: Chain tensioner question

I'm pretty new to motorized bikes, so take this for whatever it's worth. I had the same issue. My tensioner moved, my chain went into the spokes and my wheel went way out of true. I asked around here and got conflicting opinions about going without a tensioner. I decided to take a chance, and, so far so good. I had to take a couple links out of the chain, of course, but the fit and feel is great now. If the chain stretches a little I can just pull the wheel back a little bit.
