Hi all

I have recently had to install a new set of sprockets and chain, since then I have noticed that the front and rear sprockets are ever so slightly offset (not completely in line with eachother). Can't get a photo right now but I will post one tomorrow, for now please excuse my Microsoft Paint illustration :lol

Is there something I'm doing wrong? I had to replace the two front engine mount bolts last year, as the previous owner had some dodgy bolts holding it in place. That was a bit of a challenge as the mounting holes didn't quite line up with the engine as you would expect..could the engine not be properly mounted in the frame?

Thanks mate I'll give that a check in the morning. I know that the front isn't, but I'll check the rear anyways.

Unfortunately there's nothing I can do to change the rear sprocket either. Front sprocket is identical on both sides, have to mention they're JT sprockets as well with a DID 520 chain.
