Quick Chain Adjustment

10 posts in this topic

I just saw a picture of Chad Reed's old San Manuel YZ450 and noticed there is an adjustment wheel instead of a locking nut for the rear axle blocks to adj. chain. My question is this available for anyone to buy or is this one of those trick works things?

I will see if I can find the picture info. Here goes. http://www.racerxill.com/images/wall...0000001239.jpg

Enlarge the image and look at the axle block adj. screw, it seems to have a wheel towards the front edge to do manual adj. rather than using a wrench.

Sorry this didn't work, but I think if you enter the site manually it will work. I just found out that Gray also posted this pic to show how the team did a breather hose re-route.

Is this the picture? I don't see much of an advantage. But then, I adjust my chain maybe once a year.

Yes, that was it. I had just noticed this and was wondering if it was avail. for everyone. I seem to have problems with my chain "stretching" when riding in muddy conditions for a long weekend ride and it even fell off once when a stick hit the chain.:lol: and thought this would be nice to just be able to turn the wheel and whammo correct chain tension.
