 alignment adjusters not aligned

PostSubject: alignment adjusters not aligned   Thu Oct 06, 2016 10:55 am

So, I took my rear wheel off to change sprockets and chain and now the chain tension adjusters are quite off, when I try to adjust the chain slack
the left side seems to be working just fine, but the right side (the rear break assembly side) is far tighter (shown by the markings measures) and
when I loose to match the right side, it doesn't touch the adjuster. any thoughts? baldy

Two thoughts. Sometimes you have to manually push the wheel assembly forward to touch the adjusters.

Some bikes the adjuster blocks are not symmetrical, they are different length if installed upside down. Can't remember if the wrr is that way.

A easy way to get the axle blocks tight up against the adjuster bolts is to put a rag between the sprocket and chain and rotate the wheel.

I keep the wheel straight by measuring between the side of the tire and the swingarm with my fingers and don't pay much attention the to the lines on the stock axle blocks. I have zeta axle blocks on mine and the lines are pretty close but the stock ones were off a touch.

Thanks guys, I took it a part and put it back together and it worked fine. yes, the markers are still a little off but the measurement is right!
I went on a test ride on the dirt and it is a totally different bike! I was riding stock gearing and I absolutely love the 13/48 combo! muuuuch more torque!
