Thanks, for whatever reason youtube degrades the quality a good bit. I think I'll try converting the video before uploading next time

How do you have your exhaust mounted? I am afraid to take mine off road since my exhaust is currently hanging out...

I actually need to tighten it up, I just hope I haven't messed up the studs. I will likely get a strap for it today (finally).

Also, it sounds like your clutch is slipping a bit.
I have it mounted stock (between the pedals)... I have it secured at the engine and to the frame though - too much vibration not to

Is the whining noise the clutch? If it is the change in engine rpm's you're referring to then it's just the jackshaft changing gears

A few days ago I was running my bike and suddenly the chain got out, try to mount but I noticed that was bent I put a new one, I did something I read here to look from the back to see if the chain align with the sprocket and was misaligned,check around to see what was wrong,and imagine what I found?"the frame broke"I leave two pictures so you can see where it broke and advise me which is the best way to weld this area and Thanks

I got a strap for mine, a little too big. GAH!!

Yeah, it sounded like the clutch to me, I know the difference between a gear shift and the clutch whining.
Then again, I've never heard mine since I have an open exhaust.


SPEAKING OF WHICH!
That little bit of carb tuning I did has greatly improved ridability. I don't have to turn the choke on to get more fuel now. It 4 strokes a bit a full throttle but it's not bad. Hit 39 mph yesterday downhill.

So what would be other signs that my clutch needs adjustment/ replaced parts?

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

i removed the dynamic chain tensioner .and replaced it with a plain roller and took it for a 42 kilometer run exellent fun good time for thinking out there on ure own ..music blasting through earphones drowns out all other noise and a good selection of music too
