Actually getting the SS RIP9 to work right

The other day I was talking about tweaking the SS RIP9. The quick link on my single speed chain was knocking into the cage of my tensioner, and making stuff skip.

So I had the dremmel out, and I was chopping away at the aluminum cage to get more clearance. Which somehow made everything worse. I cut away more and more material, then I stopped. I looked at the tensioner again. The pullys were closer to the right side than the left. All I had to do was flip the quick link around to face the inside of the chain.

I flipped it. Problem solved, no dremell needed. I'm dumb. And now I have a tensioner with a big chuck missing from the cage.
