Default Re: Chain Issues

It has about half an inch of tension, so i don't think that's the issue. My back wheel seems a little misaligned and that might be the issue. Also, on the inside of the casing of the small sprocket, it seems like the chain might be rubbing against it. Could this be why its popping off??

The problem is probably not in the engine drive casing, unless the motor is out of alignment, a lot.

Inspect all the issues mentioned above.

Good luck

It's nearly a normal occurance, with a HT running a rag joint.
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
