MEA­SURE THE TEN­SION

RiDE (UK) - - Products -

The ideal range of move­ment

Find the tight­est point (the least dis­tance from bot­tom chain to swingarm) and take read­ings here. Push the chain up and down to mea­sure the move­ment. The al­low­able range will be spec­i­fied in the man­ual. Get some­one to do this with you on the bike, as sus­pen­sion com­pres­sion will af­fect the re­sult. It’s bet­ter to be slightly loose than tight. Mov­ing the wheel away from the gear­box in­creases chain ten­sion and vice versa.
