Default Re: Sorry for a newbie qestion...

Ya know, I'm wondering why a 415 chain broke. Before you put another chain on there, I would check your allignment fore to aft. Check the caster and camber of your rear wheel too, it should be bolted straight up and down, and pointing straight in line with the frame. You may want to see if your engine is tilted at all. And is there anything behind that little sprocket cover that might have gotten stuck in your chain?

I'm one of the more anal-retentive people here, I'm sure, so if that sort of thing happened to me I'd come up with a "laundry list" of things to check. But, hey, it keeps me out of jams sometimes.
