Does a motorized bicycle need a chain tensioner?
if you can get the engine chain and the peddle chain, both at the right tension, you’ll be good. I ran one of my bikes for about a year with no chain tensioner, but then i changed the sprocket to a smaller one. this required me to go with a 1/2 link and to make a tensioner so that both chans woudl be set right.

What is timing chain tensioner?
Consequently, the timing chain tensioner is a device that places the necessary tension or pressure on the chain to allow it to control the timing chain properly. It usually performs this function through spring tension or hydraulic pressure.
How do you put a chain back on a single speed bike?
Start by putting the chain around the small gear on the rear axle of the bike. Next, place some of the chain on the around the big gear by the pedals on the side facing the seat. (This side should be facing down since the bike is upside down.) Keeping one hand on the chain to guide it, slowly start pedaling the bike.
Do you need a chain tensioner?
2 Answers. You don’t need a chain tensioner (by this, you presumably mean something like the Surly Tuggnut and not a pulley which will snap on a fixie). If you are very lucky even a vertical dropout frame won’t need a tensioner but as chains stretch over time this probably won’t hold true for long.
How fast is 40cc 2 stroke in mph?
Despite their small size (about two feet high and weighing around 40 pounds), pocket bikes typically come equipped with 40cc engines, and can reach speeds up to 40 to 50 miles per hour.
How fast is 125cc?
Both 125cc scooters and motorbikes max out at 60mph, which is double the top speed of a 50cc. This makes them a much more suitable choice if you plan to do longer journeys, or are travelling on A roads. Whereas a 50cc makes a good choice for city riding, 125cc scooters are better for suburban/country riding.
How fast is a 85cc 2 stroke?
65 mph (Est.)
