tighten your chain? or maybe your chain is too long try removing a few links from your chain.

Yep, it shoudnt bounce if correctly adjusted, if its hitting the SW you'll soon be in for a big bill!

Mine did that bad when I got it. Only thing that cured it was LUBE LUBE LUBE.

I think a non O-ring chain would run a little free'r.

Hard to get rid of, nature of the short stroke 4 stroke. Keep it adjusted and lubed correctly and try to forget about it.👍:worthy: vanram
