    Bump....

    Check out our member map and add yourself if you like

    http://zeemaps.com/map?group=178631

    No need to add your real address; zip code, nearest intersection, city ect. will work just fine.

    Put a photo of your bike in your member user page, and people will be glad to share products and information with you. I've been on this page quite a while now, and I think I would have just thrown my 1st motor away and saved up for a standard moped, if I hadn't gotten so much info here.

    If you are having that many chain issues it is NOT the tensioner.
    Tensioners will NOT correct a poor sprocket mount or any other issue.

    In my years I have seen dozens of other peoples builds and 80% of any chain issues are because of that rear sprocket as that is the hardest thing to get right.
    10% is because of a bend rim or shot hub bearings (very common on Huffy type cheap bikes), 5% because of a bad chain, and the last 5% is motor sprocket related issues or a poor motor mount.

    In short don't try to work around a problem with a band aid, find and and fix the root cause.

    Quick checks:
    From the side of your bike hold the frame with one hand and push your back wheel side to side, does it move? Then it's your hub.

    Then in the same position hold the frame and grab your motor and try to push it side to side, I don't mean nudge it either, I mean shove it hard, does it move? Then it's your motor mount.

    All good? then look at the alignment from the sprocket to the motor, do they line up? if not the sprocket is too far in or out.
    Is that good too? Then spin the wheel and look at the side of the sprocket, does it have side to side or up and down wobble (chain gets tight then loose)? The sprocket isn't mounted right.

    I have big lungs so I can scream this a lot before I get blue in the face...

    TENSIONERS DO NOT FIX MECHANICAL PROBLEMS!​

    Markers load fine using the app although I've entered my data at least three times and I'm not on the map. I do exist or perhaps I just take up space.

    I entered my stuff weeks ago. Gave up after assuming its just me. Perhaps I'll try again from a PC instead on an iPad.

    Yeah I don't see you either? If you would like I can give it a try and add you to the map.
