I have a problem with my chain, although not sure if it is the chain itself.
What happens is with each rotation of the wheel, the chain loosens and tightens.
One half of the rotation it's loose, the other half it's tight, it goes like this, too tight, optimal and then too loose.
I dismounted the wheel and I can't seem to find the issue here.
Could anyone here tell me where I could start.
The wheel is mounted straight.
One thing I like to mention, there is a lot of resistance coming from the motor. When I rotate the wheel by hand, it's very hard to do so. Also, it's easy to turn by hand on one part of the rotation, and on the other it's much harder to do so, could this be to do with the motor? However even if it was, could it explain why the chain is changing from loose to tight?
I have an Evoscooter 1800W by the way.
Thank you very much
ive a problem with my chain when the wheel is turned backwards slowly my chain wobbles up and down. at speed it fine only happens when wheel is turned slowly.any ideas,thanks
It sounds like maybe the chain and sprocket are getting worn out. When sprockets wear out they can catch on the chain and make it wobble as you described. It is best practice to replace both sprockets and the chain at the same time because these parts wear out together so they should be replaced together.
thank you esp
when i try to move the rear wheel by hand there is a lot of resistance too much actually, sometimes when I try to accelerate the scooter it cuts off as there is too much resistance. the resistance is coming from the motor itself, it's almost impossible to move the motor sprocket by hand. Im wondering if this is due to regenerative breaking or if the motor is malfunctioning. It is an evo 1800 scooter. also the motor heats up very quickly, even heating up quickly if running the motor while the rear wheel is off the ground. I would greatly appreciate any help with this
Please let us know how it goes.
