    Sounds like you need to re-adjust your bearing cones. Then make sure that the locking nuts are tight.

    Good luck in solving your issue!!

    It sounds like that but Buddy has started yet another thread about his bikeberry knock off shift kit without telling the reader any background and just presumes that you will know what he is asking about. :)
    Why do noobs start multiple threads about basically the same problem?

    Because they don't have a firm grasp of how the forum works and they think by multiple posting they will get better response. We fight this battle all the time.

    This is why we PM them with the warning that they need to post once, in one area and wait for replys and not multiple or duplicate post the same question or concern in several sub-forums.

    To the OP (Original Poster): Post your question once and check back for responses. Do not post the same question or inquiry in several different sections. That is considered poor forum etiquette and rude. Thanks.

    Been doing forums (sorta) since the BBS days of the late 70s - I only read three areas here unless I note something elsewhere when scrolling down the much too long list of areas - few forums get any use out of those areas, and much info is lost in a cyber cul-de-sac.

    MotorBicycleRacing is so right you get what you're willing to pay for. My Staton shiftkit is a double freewheel one. It has two White Industries Trails freewheels in it. The shiftkit has never failed.

    i have figured out it is the barrings in the front freewheel yes the cheap jack-shaft kit from bikeberry there barrings came loose and it ruined the inside of the freewheel hub part so i ordered the hd freewheel and all the good hd parts from sickbikeparts.com this should fix the issue :) if anyone else gets these kits just go with sickbike parts save youreself the hassels by spending the extra 150 bux

    it is a new problem every post i have posted on here has been a new problem like i told 2door this is a new problem why would i post it under a thread about a different problem? also only a shiftkit has a front freewheel bikes without shiftkits dont have a front freewheel... that is why i did not mention it was from a shift kit but i edited the post anyway but yes it is the cheap kit and i just replaced the parts from sickbikeparts cause i dont want any more issues
