Nice job! & nice build! May I ask what brand your bike work stand is? Is it holding up the whole bike? Thanks.The job is done!
In my case, changing the output sprocket from a 12 T to a 10 T lead me into replacing everything in that drive line, chain and the rear wheel sprocket.
When fitting the chain I could not find the sweet spot to have the rear wheel centered in the fender and be safely in the rear horizontal drop outs.
It’s a good thing that the engine base had slots that the bolts go through and thus the engine could be moved forward or backward or I wouldn’t have another option.
I moved the engine forward about 3/4” and that got me the right tension on the drive side and got the peddle chain tension where I wanted it after removing the 1/2 link.
After moving the engine forward and bolting everything down I went back and pulled one bolt out at a time to clean them and put blue lock tight on them. Then check everything over again for being lined up, tighten up and then I cleaned, oiled the chains and changed the fuel lines and in line filter. And I wiped the bike down with a quick wax spray.
Thank you all for all the comments!
