The Tru-Tension Chain Monkey sets the chain with the perfect tension first time, every time, without the need for additional adjustment.
Kart racers and mechanics alike are looking for ways to tension the drive chain quickly, easily and on the first attempt. The movement of the engine on the chassis as its tightened down always causes the chain to be either too slack or too tight on the first attempt, resulting in time wasted trying to achieve the correct tension.
The Tru-Tension Chain Monkey solves all of these problems by applying the correct tension to the chain before the engine is tightened down. Once removed, it sets the chain with the perfect tension first time, every time, without the need for additional adjustment. So if you’re tired of wasting time to get the correct chain tension, purchase a Chain Monkey Kart today and use that time to reduce your lap times.
How to use your Chain Monkey
Before you begin, set your Chain Monkey.
Step 1: Set the chain to the tension you require using your normal method.
Step 2: Hook your Chain Monkey onto the chain. Tighten the centre bolt until all slack is removed from the chain.
Step 2: Align bottom of domed nut with required setting line and adjust circular stop until it touches the orange base.
Step 3: Using a spanner, tighten the locking nut up to the orange base while all slack is taken from the chain. Once complete, your Chain Monkey will be set to the required tension.
Step 4: Loosen the chain and hook your Chain Monkey onto the chain.
Step 5: Tighten the centre bolt of your Chain Monkey until the locking nut touches the orange base.
Step 6: Tighten the chain ensuring all slack is removed. Ensure the chain sets correctly, press down on top of the engine to certify that it is sat flat against the chassis rails and does not rock while being tightened.
Step 7: Undo centre bolt and remove your Chain Monkey.
