Default Re: My Will is Broken

After you get the kinks out, you'll have a pretty reliable machine. I haven't had to do anything but add gas in 6 months. It's all about getting past that tipping point. If you have a dished sprocket, flip it and see which way loses the chain less. Then use a dremel to make the sprocket edges less blocky and more inclined to help grab the chain. Make sure the chain is tight enough that it takes some work to get the master link on with your hands, but not so tight that you can no longer attach it without tools. I was in your spot when I was building mine a few times.
