SOURCE: The tension on the recumbent exercise bike does not get hard

If your bike has magnetic resistance and you changed the batteries this should make your tension work properly. Since it did not I believe that there are magnets somewhere on your bike that are wearing out. Or it could be a computer part. Your manual should tell what part you need to order and replace. I hope this information has been helpful.

Also make sure the batteries that you put in your bike are really new ones. Sometimes you can purchase new batteries at a store and they are actually a little weak. I had this problem with an elyptical trainer and I went and got other batteries and this fixed the problem.

SOURCE: I can not release the

Hello Bhlamaina,

I understand that you are having a problem releasing the tension on your Stamina r360s bike. The controls to increase and decrease the tension are on the handles ends on the left and right side of your seat. The left side releases the tension and the right side increases the tension.

The tension is controlled by an electromagnet. The unit must be powered in order to increase or decrease the tension. If the unit is powered and will not increase or decrease the tension you can first replace the two switches, if this is not the problem you may need to replace the magnet control.

You can order parts for your unit from the follow website http://www2.staminaproducts.com/services/services.cfm?service=parts

Here is a link to the owners manual on your bike as well just incase you need it

I changed the oil and now i have a lifter noise. Are the timing chain tensioners adjustable on a 1997 Vulcan 800


That engine has adjustable chain tensioners. That may solve all your noise problems. Be sure you know how to adjust the ones on your bike before starting.

Stamina 15-1306 is not recording time, miles, calories, etc. Brand new.


The magnet located inside the right lower cover, which is attached to sensor wire needs adjusted. Just move it a little closer to Large sprocket which turns with the chain. Worked for me.

I own a 2004 BMW R1200CL. Almost every time I crank the engine I can hear the valves rattle. I have checked and adjusted the valve clearances to spec. The rattle goes away after the engine starts, but...


Yep, most of these bikes do rattle on startup. The noise is from cam chain slack. A hydraulic tensioner is used in the engine on each side as there are two cam chains. The tensioner leaks down after the engine sits for a while and the chain rattles for a few seconds till the tensioner gets pumped back full of oil again. Once the chain is tight again, then no noise.

BMW came out with an improved tensioner (doesn't leak down as quickly) that you can install on your engine to fix the rattle. Note that it is much easier to change the RHS tensioner than the LHS one.

Good Luck!

The tension adjustment does not get difficult enough


If you are refering to a regular bicycle this means the derailer is not making the chain jump from gear to gear. You probably need a new shifter cable or the shifter cable came unhooked from the derailer. I would take your bike to a bike shop to have this reconnected and then they will adjust it for you.

If you are refering to an exercise bike then here may be your solution. From what I have seen on exercise bikes there are three different kind of bikes. I am refering to how there resistance works.

First type has a strap that wraps around the wheel. There is a some kind of a nut and a bolt that holds that strap around the wheel. You simply need to tighten that nut. The strap will stretch over time and that is why you do not have the same resisteace you had when the bike was new. Afer you tighten this you will find that regular tensioner works better.

The Second type of exercise bike has what appears to be brake pads contacting the wheel. Basically your peddaling the bike with the brakes on. Pretty simple concept. Again there should be some sort of adjustment around this pad that is touching the wheel. Probably a screw or a bolt. Some even have adjusters that you can turn with your fingers.

The new and improved exercise bikes have what is called magnetic resistance. This is where your resitance is created by a magnet and some sort of power source such as batteries or your bike being plugged into a wall outlet. If you are using batteries replace them. I found that with my elyptical exerciser new batteries made a world of difference in the resistance settings. If changing the batteries doesn't help then there may be another problem. This could be the computer. Just check your user manual and I am sure you can get it replaced.
