Subtank Mini tight air flow

Subtank Mini tight air flow

Postby skipper » Sun Sep 04, 2016 1:31 am

Just purchased the Subtank Mini, checked its genuine, but the air flow adjust is impossibly tight,
Any suggestions to help free this ring?

Is the ring tight when you open the package box or after a period of time use?

Hi, it was tight from new. I filled the tank , tried to adjust but it was too tight to move by hand.

You can take it back to your dealer to check the condition.

This is the second unit, both locked solid.
An update , some 2 weeks later is the the airflow ring has eased off considerably. I would imagine this is due to oil seeping into the sleeve.

As with a lot of new tanks they can be rather tight when first in use but ease off after a while it is not machine oil or grit , usually depends when and who assembled it , if it was a warm day the metal will have expanded and it will be easier to tighten but when you take it to a different climate maybe rather cooler the metal faces will tend to grip , I recently purchased a aspire evo tank and had to dis assemble the whole thing to get the factory fitted coil out .By the way folks stick to kangertech , coils and tanks far better than anything else on the market
