Chain sounds too tight. Refer to your manual for correct tension.

Regardless of what gear it's in, my Zike Saber chain slips as I step on the pedals. How do I solve this?


the saber zike is a elliptical bicycle. All answers above think you have a motorcycle or they have no clue. Is the chain on the sprocket, It seems to be off the gear. Zike recomends switching 1 gear at a time. Do not go from 7th to first gear in one shift or chain will come off the gear .It happened to me .Chain id not easy to put back on as a bike, that you can turn upside down and have it support itself on the seat and handlebars. The saber you must hold the back wheel off the ground and try somehow to turn the peddle backwards. I am not sure how to make an elliptical chain go backwards like a bike does without resistance.

Timing chain has a lot of slack and is rubbing against internal case. question can existing chain be tightened or must be replaced completely


The timing chain keeps the major componants in the engine alligned. A new chain will allign the engine componants better than an old chain that is sagging... and will thusly make the engine perform better and get better fuel milage as well as last longer.

I would replace the chain and not even consider the tightening of a chain that is that worn out...

You are lucky not to have the chain skip and cause the valves to come into contact with the pistons... ( read ; Interference engine)

Mechanic replaced timing chain but rattling noise still happens. he said it could be the oil pump or the chain that runs the oil pump? was replacing the timing chain needed?


Replacing the timing chain is done around 100,000 miles, but can last as long as 200,000.
Sounds like something may be on its way out, and a rattle does indicate a chain. Not all oil pumps use chains...many use gears to spin the oil.
Most people know when it needs replacement when they are calling for a tow truck.
It could be your water pump as well. It is hard to tell where the sound comes from sometimes. A stethescope may help pin-point the sound to the part.
Good Luck!

Rubbing metal noise coming from timing chain.


Dear Rubbing Noise,
The correct and long term repair for this would be to replace the chain and timing chain tensioners.Only saying to replace the chain seeing as how it's been slapping on metal, where it's not supposed to.This will cure your problem and you will be a happy camper, HOPE I COULD HELP!!!

Timing chain


The timing chain is nothing like a timing belt service interval wise. The only time that you would need to change a timing chain is if its somehow damaged. This can happen when worked on and the chain guides arent fitted back on properly, camshaft vanos units not tightened etc. Otherwise the timing chains are almost always never changed!

One less thing to worry about. Hope this helps!
