Solo 210 Belt Tension


Recommended Posts

Hi. I have recently bought a second hand Vortex paramotor with a Solo 210 engine. The guy I bought it from started it fine, but when I try it just kicks back when it fires, sometimes pulling the handle out of my hand and has even snapped the starter cord on one occasion.

I think it may be that I may just need a trip to the gym but I read online that this can be down to poor belt tension, but how tight should the belt be? how do you tell if its tight enough or even too tight? I read that if the belt is too tight you can break the prop or crank shaft.

Can anyone help?
