Ouchie fuck!!! I knew it didn't sound to good or feel to good on the bike, didn't realize the crunching/chatter sounded that bad in the distance. This was also my first run and the second run sounded a lot worse on the bike.

:rofl: hahahaha

Yeah what I ended up doing with the next race I made it to, one of the guys just said ride the bike up and just take it easy off the light, the other guy might red-light or break out or possibly break a part on his bike. So what I did was just rode up to the lane, faked like I was gonna do a burn out and faked like i was gonna actually run the bike and just limped it down the track for a final loss. Then just babied it home. My buddy Jimmy(gixxer750) made a good point to not even ride it even with changing out the oil as if the clutch is spitting off metal that then I'm gonna have to pull off the oil pan and scrap it out and also clean out the oil pick up. So what I'm gonna end up doing is order the clutch when I get the money but first change out the oil and filter, see if notice any metal come out with the oil and then check the filter. If I notice little to no metal shavings then just replace oil and filter and let it run for like 5 minutes. Then just let her sit till I get the new clutch, if I notice a decent amount of metal shavings then I'll change out the oil and filter a second time, so I could possible be changing the oil twice or three times depending on the metal shavings and the last time being when I put the clutch in.

Also I might end up painting the clutch cover black since I'll have it off with changing out the clutch. So I guess that's a plus to having to do this. The bike will start looking good haha

Engine paint :dunno: it's made to stand up to high temps right? Lol and that isn't a bad idea either with the powder coating.

Sooooo the noise that is heard in the video has been diagnosed to the chain skipping. Now is the fun factor of putting the old gears back on and seeing if the chain slip still occurs or not and if it does then the swing arm is twisting. But my guess is the gears I got.

:rofl: not my 1/4 time as my clutch was indeed slipping. I was running the same times with a slower trap speed but it did make my 60fts a whole lot quicker.

And don't ask me why I didn't order vortex sprockets to begone with instead of these AFAM sprockets I got. I wasn't thinking.
