chain alignment ?

this would be for the techs, patric ex

i got out to day to take some slack out of the chain,,

any how i am prittyr sure i got the axle even ex ,, chain strait aligned,, mesured double mesured and then triple mesured ex any how i got it up on the stand so i start it up and kick it in 1st gear

the chain seams to snake back and forth as its running dont look bad ,, wear on the sprocket is not bad ,, ex

any how is this normal , i have not paid to much att to how it runs ,, just ajust and roll the wheel a few times and looks good


this is the first time i think i ever put it in gear and let it idle

i got out a dial indicator and run it on the wheel and again on the sprockit to check run out the wheel is any wher from .010-.015 and the sprocket run out (side ) is les i say .005-.010 ,,,,


is the snakeing of the chain normal and is the run out on the rim ok ,, never check a rim or sprocket befor !


anyone ?

Talking about the movement up and down? If so, that is normal. There is no tension on it.

You have a problem then. How would you have a side load anyway? It should run true

A tiny bit is normal. You are should be more worried about your wheel being straight than the sprocket/chain. As long as their is lube on the chain and it's not way off there won't be any wear
