StarTrac NXT Chain Tensioning & Alignment Video


About This Video


Adjusting Chain Tension and Alignment on a StarTrac NXT


  • In this video, we show how to tension and align the chain and flywheel on a StarTrac NXT bike


  • First you see an example of a chain that is way too loose


  • To correct this loosen the flywheel bolt on both sides of the flywheel


  • Loosen the tension nut on the sprocket side of the bike and tighten the tension bolt until you get the proper deflection on the chain



    • A properly tensioned chain will have roughly 3/16" of deflection




  • Tighten the tension nut and the flywheel nut on both sides as shown in the video


Check the Alignment of the Chain and Sprockets after Making a Chain Tension Adjustment


  • Misaligned chains will look like they are walking from side to side where they enter and leave the sprockets



    • This can cause noise, premature wear, as well as making the chain look to be jumping from side to side during use




  • To correct this, loosen the flywheel nut on both sides of the flywheel, then loosen the tension nut and adjust the tension bolt to move the flywheel in the proper direction needed to align the chain with the flywheel sprocket, as seen in the video



    • Note: If you have already achieved proper tension of the chain, adjusting the tension nut on the opposite side from the sprocket will help to keep the same tension on the chain




  • Don't forget to check the chain tension after making an alignment adjustment

You did great with the assembly, however, you're off on the alignment. Try to adjust to pull the axle in the opposite direction to clear the cage.

I need to tighten the chian on my schwinn airdyne.


Two places to tighten the chain and it requires you to loosen the nuts on BOTH sides of the bike, almost at the same time. Start at the fan wheel (top) of the bike. First thing you need to do is to loosen the little nut at the hub of the fan wheel on both sides. Unscrew it almost to the point of taking it off, but leave it screwed on the end of the bolt so it will stay on the bike. Then use an adjustable wrench to loosen the nut a bit on one side and then do the same on the other side OR use both hands and loosen both at the same time by unscrewing with adjustable wrench in opposite directions on both sides. Once the wheel is loose, you want to sit in front of the bike and pull both of the large nuts at the same time toward you and the chain will tighten. The goal is to have the fan wheel centered and for you to be able to see about 1/4" inch of clear gap behind the nut on both sides. Then use your fingers to tighten the nuts to the frame just enough until you can use the adjustable wrench again. I have sometimes used a flat head screwdriver to insert into the gaps to prevent the chain from loosening up. The tighten the nut on both sides of the bike. Be sure you tighten the little nuts as well (they are called chain tensioners). That SHOULD do the trick. However, if your bike chain is still too loose, you need to do the same for the chain at the pedal area, That requires the same thing all over again, but in most cases, the chain loosens at the top part of the bike (fan wheel place). However, if you do work on the pedal area, you want the chain to be pushed toward the fan and not toward the **** side of the bike. It may sound crazy but that's the only way to tighten the chain. give me a thumbs up with my solution.

I have just bought a Yamaha warrior 2003 model and went for a ride yesterday with my neighboor who has the same bike. We swapped bikes for a while and the ride on his bike was so much softer. We looked at...


There are two spring tensions used. 127 or 137N/mm.
Be carefull adjusting the unit because over-adjustment can release the mechanism and spring with disasterous results.
At one end of the unit are a pair of half nuts. One of which, the outermost, is the lock nut.
With two spanners, release the lock nut. Screwing the adjustment nut in will increase the tension.
I have a Buel M2 and a friend of mine adjusted the tension too low. He went over a trough in the road at speed leaving the rear numberplate and lights behind!

I hope that helps and ride safe!

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.

Chain tension


Most any motorcycle comes with an adjustable chain device on the rear swing arm. as you adjust the small nut inwards towards the front of the bike, it tightens the chain. Likewise for loosening. the adjuster should have increment markings on both sides of the swingarm to even the wheel out. Now I can't say for sure that this is the case with your bike, so I just joined a website that has a forum on these bikes. If you'd like to join as well here is the address http://www.ducati.ms/ I'll get the info from them and relay it back to you. Hope this helps
