detective 21 Posted June 6, 2019 Report Share Posted June 6, 2019 hoping for some input here guys, building a paul Jackson framed cub and struggling with the chain tensioner position, was hoping to get it tucked up behind the peg mount on the swing arm but the chain had clearance issues with the spring when the swingarm moved, I have tried a gasgas/universal/beta tensioners and all have issues mounting in this area, so I have now mounted one on the back of the peg mount, clearance with the chain is the best I have had it and as the swingarm moves the tensioner keeps tension. I like this position but are there any issues with doing it this way? I thought that because is it still mounted close to the pivot point of the swingarm the difference between the frame position and swingarm position in relation to the pivot point is quite small. my only other alternative is to move it forward a couple inches to a more conventional position.... if anyone has any suggestions on mounting position and tensioner to use.
