Default Re: Why not smaller chain?

I had a problem with power loss at high rpms. Chris helped me with trouble shooting all the usual suspects- bad mix, carb clip, etc. He's always prompt to respond. I finally figured out it was a leak in the case (see pic) which I diagnosed by spraying carb cleaner while the motor was running. I fixed it with rtf as suggested on a thread here and dropped Chris a note to tell him what was up. The motor was almost a year old at this point and he didn't hesitate to exchange it for a new one. I'll admit it was a pain, but once the problem became clear he really did come through. As far as his being a better motor, it's hard for me to say as I have no point of reference, this was my first kit and I've yet to meet any other riders here on Cape Cod. I'd recommend buying from him, if you can stand the shipping delays due to the canada customs.
