    whenever i start pedaling and let off the clutch, the chain will come off, it just started doing this a few days ago. the bike has hardly any miles on it, put chain back on, and it comes off, im tightening it pretty tight yoo.

    Tight is NOT good !
    It only means accelerated wear.

    What you need is proper alignment.
    Set the bike up on a milk crate and spin the wheel to see how it looks.

    Perhaps something is loose? and changing when power is applied, and let off?

    IMO, the chain run on these MB's is long, too long, and a tensioner working properly is a necessity.
    After optimal alignment, that will require attention.

    loosened the chain, cleaned plug, and it fired right up, thank you, hope it works.
