Bought a 142f to put on my cdh frame cuz I was tired of all my 2 stroke issues(that said I have a bunch of 2 stroke stuff I'd like to TRADE or sell) but I'm having a problem getting the chain installed it looks like it should line up but when I put the chain on it looks like the drive gear side looks like it's too far inside. The bike looks killer and I'm stoked to ride it. I'll post up some pics and you guys always lead me in the right direction. On my last 4 stroke post you guys comolety solved me issues. So anyways here's the pics
I know the close ups of the tire and gear leave a bit to be desired but is kinda the best I can get. Now I put a chain on there just so you guys can see what I'm talking about. Also my chain breaker was broken by my younger brother in law help please

The Engine can move left and right on the mount a little, also if you don't got a chain breaker a Hammer and screw driver works

on one of my bikes i flipped the mount around so it could move more to the left because i had a wider tyre.


if you don't wanna use a hammer and screw driver, measure how much chain you need with a master link and go-to a hardware strore that deals with tractors and such and get some #41 chain

The 415 chains supplied with these kits are mostly bad. A #41 chain will likely
solve your problem. from Tractor Supply or some other place.

Got it on nice and straight. I actually had a chain breaker it was in a box of parts that I bought which was awesome I'm going to post another thread because now well I'll see if I get any replies on this first now the bike's only going about 4 mph I'm on McCarthy I have the same engine on 142f on the bike in the picture and like I'm getting a top speed of like 5 mph so I'm going to take gearbox off and try stretching out the chain a little I've seen that on eBay but if anybody knows of anything else that might be causing this issue please let me know I got the idle screw set pretty good so I need guidance could help I'm going to leave it posted here before I post a new thread. Thanks again guys you guys always seem
to point me in the right direction
