Spanners, probably two things...
IMO u should take a link out of the chain and re-position the tensioner so it does not put the slack side of the chain in such a sharp angle.
Also, there's a current thread on switching to 410 chain. It seems everyone who has done so never looks back!

. Thanks Rustycase
I'm willing to try anything, my reasoning was a bad heat treating and the poor material there made from. I'll look into the 410 as well.
Cheers mate

Are you losing your chain on acceleration, or when decelerating?

Skarrd, I like the look of those little motors! ...don't know nuthin abt 'em, but I like the look! :-) It's called CAG? wazzat stand for??? or mean?

No riding today...

Do you mean 415 chain? Can you please post or PM the thread link? I googled 415 chain on this site, and there were LOTS of old threads.

I have one of these, but haven't installed it yet (can't fit with current cog installation) but it is heavy, and the rollers don't flop around. The side plates are THICK. http://compare.ebay.com/like/2808204..._lwgsi=y&cbt=y
KMC 415H dirt jump chain, 22$USD

$13, maybe free shipping, http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-BMX-Chai...#ht_607wt_1187

Smile Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I had a great day with my daughter at the parks. My bike worked great, with the new boost bottle, new tire and super tubes. I had awesome traction, even on wet grass I could motor around. (I put the tire on "backwards" and it seemed to work wonderfully that way.) She got to play on the grass and playground, got to see ducks and geese and puppies, got to see Grandma, and got Sonic chocolate malt after her lunch. Yum.
