    New to this, I have a Schwinn swindler with a 2 stroke, long story short. I had the bike up and running putting along at 20 mph and threw the chain. It wrapped around the sprocket and I stopped reeeeeeeeal quick, resulting in a broken axle. So now I'm just waiting for for part's.

    Welcome, make sure the chain runs centered on the chain tensioner if you are using one. Check everything before "each" ride till you are used to what it takes to keep it on the road.

    Ya I think the motor torqued over to the left, so I got a new mount for the motor

    Make sure the engine is solidly mounted, it must rest tight to both mounting points. One of the most overlooked steps of installing a kit is mounting.
