Default Need some input

Ok guys here we go. finished my 1st build yesterday. took her out this morning, no problem. took it out just this afternoon, the chain idler pulled in when I engaged the engine (I have it as tight as I can get it on the tube) and the chain jumped to the inside of the sprocket and snapped off my master link...thank god that's all that happened. is this idler worth the risk or is it advantageous to fab one that goes between the two bars supporting the back of the bike. I just don't like the way this idler pulled into the tire like it did. I thought the chain was straight as I had no problems this morning. I am looking for thoughts of those who are more experienced than I at this. Thanks guys
