Question about 2005 TVS Fiero F2
Hi. I need help. I fixed a 110 size rear tyre for my Fiero F2, which is oversize (as against the normal 90 size). So, I had to weld and widen the swing arm. The chain guide rubber was accidentally removed and discarded, when the widening of the swing arm was done. Then, the tyre was coming into contact with the rear mud guard, because of which i had to increase the length of my shocks. Ever, since i have done this, i am having a lot of problems. The chain is coming into contact with the swing arm, and the chain is getting worn out. Also, the mileage is very low - about 25-30 kmpl. Please help. Is it possible to do anything about the chain without changing back the tyre to 90? Because, I have spent a lot on my 110 size tyre and it is only 3 months old and i dont want to waste it. i would be happy if i could do something about the chain. I can manage with the low mileage. Even if i fix a small piece of rubber in between the swing arm and the chain with fevikwik, it quickly gets worn off in 2 days.
PLEASE HELP ME.
Hi ..... Welcome to the 'custom' world ! As you've discovered changing one thing leads to another. The chain angle has changed due to the shock length. You could try going to a breakers and buy another chain guide rubber ? More involved solutions could be to off set gear box sprocket, intermediate chain tensioner pully, go back to stansard shocks (which is main problem) and widen rear mudhuard/fender (which as you can weld isn't a big issue) or make up a 'tunnel' out of a round or square section of nylon and allow the chain to run through it. Let us know how you get on.
