my chain keeps getting stuck in the front sprocked. How do I remedy this. PS I still havent got the bike started... day three............. someone snipe me please.
augidog said:some drive-sprockets are a bit too wide for the chain...a remedy for this is to grind a bit of bevel on the teeth, allowing the links to drop into place.
also, make sure the chain isn't too loose, this can cause your problem, too.
augidog said:ok, the tension problem is directly related to the sprocket problem.
step 1) does the chain seat properly on the drive sprocket?
augidog said:i'm still concerned about bottom tight/top loose syndrome...something has to be causing that.
1a) spark-plug out, clutch-arm cover off, hand turning rear wheel. does the chain appear to be riding all the way down on the drive sprocket teeth? any binding? how's overall alignment of front & rear sprocket?
Ya same chain.... well got the chain fixed ... for people who have trouble too.... before lifting and tightening the tensioner. roll bike backwards to tighten the top chain.... yeah I peed in you pool!!!!!!!!jeffspeeder said:are you using the chain that came with the kit?
