Easily Tighten Your E100 Electric Scooter Chain

Riding an e100 electric scooter is a blast, but a loose chain can rob you of your speed and efficiency. Fortunately, tightening the chain on your e100 scooter is a simple task that can be done without professional help. Follow these easy step-by-step instructions and get your e100 scooter back on the road with a tight, secure chain.

Step 1: Obtain the necessary tools
To get started, gather the following tools:

  • A 5mm Allen (hex) wrench
  • A 10mm open-ended wrench
  • A flathead screwdriver
  • A clean, dry cloth

Step 2: Power off and position your scooter
Make sure your scooter has completely cooled down, then switch it off and unplug it from the charger. Stand it on its side (kickstand facing down) to access the chain and motor housing cover.

Step 3: Remove the motor housing cover
Using the 5mm Allen wrench, remove the four screws securing the motor housing cover. Once the screws are out, gently lift the cover off, setting it aside.

Step 4: Loosen the motor axle
Using the 10mm open-ended wrench, loosen the nuts on both sides of the motor axle. This will allow you to slide the motor and create tension in the chain.

Step 5: Adjust chain tension
Carefully slide the motor towards the rear wheel until you achieve the desired chain tension. There should be roughly 3-5mm of up and down movement in the middle of the chain when it's properly adjusted. Be careful not to overtighten, as this can cause additional wear and tear on the chain and sprockets.

Step 6: Tighten the motor axle
Once you've achieved the desired chain tension, use the 10mm wrench to tighten the nuts on both sides of the motor axle, ensuring the motor remains in place.

Step 7: Adjust motor housing cover and clean up
Align the motor housing cover over the motor and chain, then use the 5mm Allen wrench to secure it, tightening the four screws. Finally, use the dry cloth to clean any dirt or debris on the chain and surrounding area.

Step 8: Test your scooter
Power up your scooter, taking it for a quick spin to ensure the chain is properly tightened and the scooter is running smoothly. With a tighter chain, you'll enjoy a smoother ride and better overall performance.

By following these simple steps, you can easily tighten your e100 electric scooter chain, ensuring a more efficient and enjoyable ride.
