Hey there fellow bikers and/or stunters! So, I got a little problem and I was hoping that some of you pros out there could help me :( This happpened about a month ago. I was riding like I usually did, and then I cracked the throttle like anyone would, and then all of the sudden, I heard my engine running fine, but I guess somewhere in the drive, something was wrong. Now, whenever I try accelerate even a little too much, something feels out of place. Click click click click!! Something is clicking out of place. Kind of hard to explain... :huh2:

All the symptoms pointed to a slipping clutch, so I installed a brand new clutchpack. The problem was still happening. :angry: My friend says now that it could be that my rear sprocket could be worn down. Maybe it's my front sprocket, who knows? Not me. :O And after he said that, it did seem like that could be it. It feels like the chain might be slipping off the sprocket under higher acceleration, but I am no pro. My chain is also in not to good of condition, so.

as above check the chain for adjustment and the sprockets for bent over teeth or even tops smashed off them

exactly as above, I had the same problem when I was getting back from a trip. And my rear sprocket was almost completely worn down.

Alright umm you know what, this is embarrassing, but I haven't ever really paid attention to how worn down my rear sprocket was. I took off the front cover, and the front sprocket has actually been replaced, so its fine. It's the rear that reaally needed replacing... The teeh are very worn down on it :p the new one looks very nice on there. The brand I'm using is Vortex.
