    Default Multistrada Exxentric rear chain adjuster jammed

    Hi,

    Anyone got any idea about why the rear chain adjuster would jam. Mechanic who does my tyre replacement etc has advised that he can't get the adjuster to move so can't adjust the chain properly. Anyone seen this problem or have any ideas why it would jam?

    Thanks

    Ron

    whats the mileage on the bike. Maybe the chain was over used and stretched to the limit. Ie, the hub cannot move anti-clock wise. Try a long bar to fit the c-spanner moving the adjuster clock-wise.

    Bike has 30K miles but chain was replaced at about 23K. Bike has a scotoiler fitted so chain condition should be ok. Thanks for response

    Dirt gets into the eccentric, mainly through a hole in the hollow swinging arm at the front behind the crankcase. This will eventually cause the adjuster to seize up. It should be dismantled every few years and cleaned and greased. Easiest done when changing the rear sprocket.

    Old enough to know better, young enough not to care
