Default Re: air coming out of the left side of a 4 stroke motor.

Its very strange, the gear box seems to spin fine, there seems to be nothing wrong with the back wheel hrmm.

i did spin the back wheel and noticed the sprocket wasn't perfectly inline straight, its pretty straight tho. Just a tiny bit of a wobble, but when i'm peddling I don't notice much drag at all, nothing more than the weight of the chain on the back wheel. I installed the rear sprocket with one rubber disk when following instructions on a video, could that be causing the problem?.

I'm really at a loss, this problem doesn't even seem possible. Next step is to buy a new gear box and sprocket to see if that maybe causing the problem.

here is how i installed my sprocket.

is this the cause of my problem?
