ya we loosend the ones over the swing arm but there is nothing under the carrier.. there is the two nuts on the side near the brake... we were told to loosen the two big nuts on the side of the carrior then tighten the ones on the top so we did that and it worked a little bet the ones on top wont tighten anymore and the chain is still loose! what do u think??

Expert:  TechScooter replied 5 years ago.
IM SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS IT WILL NOT GO OFF FOR SOME REASON. IT'S 2 BOLTS WITH LOCK NUTS ON THE TOP OF THE CARRIER, AND 2 NUTS ON THE SIDE WHERE THE BRAKE ROTOR IS. JUST LOOSEN THESE NUTS ON THE SIDE AND THE LOCK NUTS AND BOLTS ON THE TOP. SCREW THEM IN IT TIGHTENS OR LOOSEN THEM AND IT LOOSENS THE CHAIN. SORRY IF I WASNT CLEAR BEFORE. - TECHSCOOTER
