could it also be that the chain is on the bottom sprocket and everything...excepts its like double lapped on one tooth..or folded up so that it makes it a lil shorter? :cry:

:thumbsup:that was it....when we took it off the first time i remember it popped off the shaft..all we did was loosen it up and it poped on and then we retightened it...gives the bike a noticable power increase..another question though...would it be a good idea to turn the fuel/air mixture up a lil bit?

Depends on whether it needs to be turned up or not. It is dependant on the bike's current set-up. Pipe? Filter? Jet kit? What other changes do you have? Does it carburet smoothly? Stumbles? Hesitations? Hard starting? Cold blooded? All things you should feel for. Determine what you would want it to be like and then adjust it.
