Slacken off the rear brake adjuster. Doing that will stop the brake from rubbing.
Hope that helps.

I have a 20" inch girls kent trouble bike. How do I take the rear wheel off?

remove the coaster brake lever bolt. This is small bolt that holds the coaster brake lever to the left side chain stay. There will probably be a strap wrapped around the chain stay with bolt going through the strap and the lever. This usually requires a 10mm wrench (sometimes it is 8mm) for the nut and a Phillips or flat head screw driver (some times it's another 10mm bolt head).
The axle nuts are usually 15mm nuts. Loosen these (they usually don't need to be removed all the way) and push the wheel forward to put some slack in the chain. Lift the chain off the rear cog and you will be able to pull the wheel out of the drop outs.
To install, slide the wheel into the dropouts, put the chain back on the cog, pull back on the wheel and tighten the nuts finger tight. Reinstall the bolt through the coaster brake lever and then tighten the axle nuts, pull back on the wheel while tightening the nuts so the chain is tight. Then tighten up the coaster brake lever bolt. (if you tighten the axle nuts first, you won't be able to move the coaster brake lever into place to get the bolt in)

I have a scwinn lockett 16" girls bike with a lot of issues Brakes dont wok training wheels fall off chain falls off seat moves my 6yr old has only rode this bike 4 times an d I spent lots on...

those things are easy fixes. i'll give you a basic guide:
1. place the bike upside down and loosen the nuts holding the back wheel in place.
2. position yourself sitting on the floor with the bike between your legs and your two feet pressing against the seat.
3. ensure the chain is in place, and then pull the back wheel towards you (ie. towards the back), hence tightening the chain.
4. while ensuring the wheel is straight, retighten the nuts while holding the wheel in place >easier if someone is helping youBRAKES:
option 1: tighten the cable by looking for the are where it meets the brakes. there should be either a screw or a nut.
option 2. loosen the two brake pads, and bring them closer to the wheel. make sure they aren't rubbing on the rim when riding however. >nb: this is easier to do when the bike is upside downSEAT:
there should be a tightening device located under the seat. simply tighten.
use a wrench to tighten.

hope this helps. any additional help, please feel free to ask

Took chain off to remove wheel and am unable to get chain back on correctly. 2001 Magna oasis 26" 7 digit shifting speed. Unablew to locate manual...can you help?

Put the chain to the inside of the front cog wheel, beside the pedals, first but not onto it, so you have plenty of room for pulling the chain to the rear. Fit the wheel back into place and before tightening it pull down the spring loaded arm, with the small cog wheel beside the back wheel. This takes the tension off the chain and allows you to put it into place on the back wheel. Tighten up the wheel. When it's tightened fit the chain onto the top of the front cog wheel. Lift the back wheel off the ground and turn the pedals forward. The chain will click onto the front cog wheel when you have turned the pedals one complete turn.

If you need to see a picture of how it should look at the back you can see one at

flip bike upside down losen back tire and pull it away from the frame (the chain will visualy get tighter) hold wheel in disired place while tightening up the nuts (side note: make sure the wheel isn't sitting crooked so that it doesnt rub on the frame or the brakes) also brake pads are ajustable to go forward and back

I can't tighten the chain. I turn the wheel to tighten it, but the little catch that fits in the hole on the bar does not move. the wheel turns but the chain remains loose

If this is the tooless chain tentioner, i would suggest the small gear arrangment in the cover has stripped, many of the gears were only plastic, remove the screws holding the cover over the mechanism and check what has striped

Replace rear brake pads on yam 125dt x


unbolt the caliper (the thing that grabs the disk) get a pair of big pliars and compress the caliper back in if it doesnt copress at first, loosen the bleed screw (the little bolt with the hole and nipple on it) until all the way compressed. tighten while fluid is still coming out make sure NO air gets in, take off the old pads and put new ones in bolt back up and fill the resivoure with brake fluid. pump the breaks until they are hard again make sure fluid is topped up.


unbolt all attaching lines or supports for the brake, loosen chain tightners and let chain off, unbolt wheel axel and pull wheel out, pull the brake hub out and change the pads pull them up into a V shape and they just pop off. to put back on slot hub into wheel, add spacers and chain tensioners hook chain on, and slide axel back in, make sure theres lots of grease on your bearings while the wheel is off, Dont get any grease on the brake pads or your breaks will not work too well.

if any more assistance needed email me

if you need to tighten the cable under the vehicle you will find where the single cable from the front connects to the two rear to tighten set the emergency brake six to seven clicks and tighten nut until the brakes catch. if you need to adjust the actually brakes in the drum set the ebrake the same setting find the little rubber plug on the backing plate remove get a small flat head screw driver and flash light find the little gear inside use the screwdriver to turn will only go one way turn the gear until brakes grab and wheel can't be turned.

Rear wheel removal

remove the chain. dont loose the pin. loosen the axle nut remove the axle. have a hand on the wheel as it will drop out at this point. install will be a bit harder. i like to lower the bike once the tire is under the fender. lower it until the holes are almost lined up. it beats trying to balance a tire and slip teh axle back in place. be sure to tighten the axle bolt to torque spec. too loose and you can get a shake, too tight and you can alter the path of the chain by a fraction and may cause premature chain wear.
