Re: New Newb Big Time
Welcome to the forum, Crusade. We're glad you've joined us.
As for your chain issue; is this a new installation or are you simply re-doing what you have? Different bike? Different engine? 2 stroke or 4? We need a little more information about what you have.
If a new bike then the chain was probably sized for the original and you'll either need a new chain or to lengthen yours.
