Default Re: Chains, tensioners, carbs...Ever wonder?

The chain and tensioner I thought were poorly made, and the chainstay mount I thought was a dangerous idea, maybe because I was NEVER able to get my sprocket centered "perfectly", and would always, and still do have a "tight then loose" condition. Therefore the spring loaded tensioner.

I think the stock carb does a fairly good job for as simple as it is. Mine worked good, did not leak and after drilling the hole for the idle circuit, idled like a motorcycle. The ONLY reason I changed it was it does not flow enough for the expansion chamber and porting I did.
