Chain tensioner spring
« on: 02, October, 2011 - 21:22:09 »
Whilst out and about in this wonderful weather, my chain tensioner fell off and the chain then become loose, whilst I was on a roundabout! i found the chain tensioner without killing myself, but could not find the spring. Does anyone have a spare spring or know where I can get a spring? CFiver

You need one of these, they dont fall off EVER !!   ;D

Chas might be able to help out with a replacement spring, also MAPLINs do a box of various springs for about 2.99, i got one from there last time i needed one.

Once refitted, put a cable tie through it, stops you losing it next time.  8)
