    Hey everyone I've got a 66cc zbox motor that has around 600kms on it, the other day I was riding home from work when the chain popped off the rear sprocket I put it back in but since then it has been really hard to pedal normally and when the motor is on it seems like there is some resistance holding it back. Also there is a grinding sound coming from where the chain attaches to the motor when I pedal. I went through the clutch and it seems to be functioning fine. Could in be the chain alignment? Any help would be much appreciated need to get this sorted ASAP!

    Take off the drive gear cover and check for damage. Then pop off the chain, Pull the clutch lever to its locked position and try turning the drive gear. Being broke in the gear should turn easy while the clutch is pulled in. If that turns easy, check yer rear wheel.
