Default Re: Shift Kit Installed, Now starting is hard

I've been riding mine for about a week now. If it was too tight on the right side I'd probably install a half link. Then remove it once the chain stretched. Mine was really tight too, but after about a week is has stretched a bit and looks to be just about perfect. The other thing I noticed was that I had to use different shims or spacers between the bearings and sprockets. If I used the number of ones that the instructions said to use, then my chain alignment was about half a tooth width off. I also had to modify quite a bit of the mounting hardware and made good use of the welder and end mill. It was not a bolt on installation with my frame and motor combination.
