Chain keeps falling off
« on: August 16, 2022, 10:35:51 AM »
Our Rad Mission is about 6 months old and has recently been having the chain come off the tensioner cogs and the rear sprocket.  Happens almost every time we ride it, often when we go over a bump.  Is there a way to adjust the tensioner so it gives more tension to the chain?  Thanks!

This shows the removal and replacement, but it's fundamentally similar. You want to unbolt the tensioner from the frame. Then if you see step #2 under "Install" that there is an indexing pin on the tensioner that fits into one of 5 holes in the frame. This is how you adjust the tension, by selecting the next hole that tightens up the chain.
