Yep , I was able to get the chain tight , but it would jump off , everything seems the same , the hub has the same offset , might have to shim the hub of the wheel and move the wheel out a bitThen you should be able to move motor up to get chain tighter. Nice to know I might have helped someone to
Would you question the fact that now the torque of the motor is through four distinct points compared to being distributed across the whole surface of the mounting plate?
But those three wheel ATVs were sure fun to race! With low profile flat tires, you can hang the rear end out and do all sort of fun stuff with them. (Probably can with a four wheelers also, but I was a mechanic at Honda when they had three wheels.) The four-wheel Honda Odyssey dune buggy bike was fun too!3 wheelers being unstable is the reason you don't see ATV's with them anymore. All quads, too many lawsuits.
Yeah. That's one problem with chains. I'm building my meridian for a less mechanically inclined person.I like the double nut idea --- a 1/2 nut ( jam nut ) would be the proper way to go
You know that saying every action has an opposite reaction :
After changing the sprocket from 44 to 50 , I had to increase the length of the chain by adding 3 links and another master link , now the chain jumped off twice yesterday , got to figurethat one out ........ suppose to rain " bad " for the next three days
