Default Re: URGENT - Crank Small Gear HELP

I also noticed that the engine sprocket where you use the sparkplug to turn it is also loose. So i tightened that.

Im still worried about the small gear being out of place.

Any response would be appreciated.

Its common for that gear to set out a bit farther like yours is, what I would do is get you some blue thread locker (loctite) or equivalent, go ahead and remove that screw, put a few drops of the loctite on it and then put it back nice a tight, let it sit over night and you should be good to go.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
