5th gear chain hopping

  1. Frid45
    When in 5th gear my chain will hop off the sprocket. Think this is just a chain tightness issue?

    Sounds like it.

    Another thing to look out for is the sprocket alignment. Most front sprockets have a "fat" side and a "skinny" side. Depending on which way the sprocket was installed, their may be just enough misalignment to cause the chain to do some funny things. This will be very obvious if you pull the front sprocket off and see that there is only wear on one side, but none on the other.

    Guessing the fat side would go against the engine?
