    Hi,
    maybe i have to elaborate a little:
    While driving i can see the TOP part of the chain (chain moving wheel to motor sproket) oscillating sometimes. Having never had a tensioner on any bike i wonder if a design meant to tension the lower part of the chain (from Motor back to wheel) would help with this too?

    Getting one of these standard tensioners of ebay would be no problem... I still try to figure if this is enough to keep the top part of chain from oscillating..

    greets

    Its normal for the top chain to slacken when you let off the acceleration, the bottom chain tightens.... the reverse happens when you accelerate and the top tightens while the bottom slackens.
    The only reason I had put a tensioner on the top was because of the derailing issue I was having. I thought it was because of the extra length in chain required because this huge ME 1616 motor moved the drive sprocket further forward than the stock petrol engine. I believe I learned that it was because I was using too big of a drive sprocket. I liked the way the bike handled with the bigger front sprocket... I didn't feel so nervous breaking the rear tire loose... now I have to be more careful!!

    Hi,
    very well, that is the normal chain behaviour.
    I did have to lengthen my chain too, but i see some, lets call it oscillation of the top part of chain ,while going a steady 52 kph. So its not a short whip like action but an ongoing vibe letting out a discerning grrr/brrr like noise. Obviously changing the speed cures it but still i would like to do something about it... just unnerving really especially as for driving silent...

    Hi Travis!
    It runs fantastic. Very fast and reliable. A buddy rode it last week and got it sliding sideways in a turn … he had an oh shit moment!!
    I still want to play with the regen, I just haven't had time to dive in yet. I might need to pick your brains a little bit to make sure I don't mess something up.
