I have asked this a few times, but couldnt get an answer.

Is there a point in which you cannot adjust the chain anymore in the sp3? My chain is too slack(got a new chain and sprockets coming), but i cannot adjust i t anymore, can't get the little swingarm adjuster to go any further. I am wondering if it cant or im not doing it right.

THanks

Yes there is that point. I rode at that point for too long and my eccentric hoosamajiger seized up and I had to take the whole rear wheel assembly apart. Pain in the ass. You can still adjust the chain right?

no, cant adjust anymore. It's way too loose.

If the chain was good id be riding right now. :(

My rear sprocket also has a few teeth broken. ouch

Just installed a new chain, using a dremmel it comes off easy. Attached a new EK chain, with those new bolt on links, man what a great way to add the link. Makes it really easy.

Then i installed the rear sprocket, and that is a neat design, it just comes off the left side, I thought i needed to take something else off.

I highly recommend these bolt on links, really cool stuff.
