    when I try to start my engine I am hearing an awful poppin sound in the clutch (not like back fire pop more like two pieces of metal pop) and this happened when I tightened up my inner clutch the other day did I tighten it up to much or what, can someone help me please.

    What are you working on...this should help. If it's a 2 cycle, post in the 2 cycle section, for a better response.

    It's probably the chain poppin off the sprocket teeth. The clutch adjustment is probably just a coincidence.

    Chain tension, chain alignment, sprocket teeth catching rollers on the chain.

    It's tough to say.

    poppin stopt

    it stopt poppin I think it was in the bearing of back tire wen i went to grease my bearings one the bearings was outta place so I kinda felt foolish . Though I put to much grease in the inner clutch and its hard to start does anyone know if it will get better in time or do I have to replace something.

    I'd take the clutch plate off and clean well. You can clean the pads with alcohol or a can of break or starting fluid
