If it was the chain it would likely be consistant in all gears. Missing/worn teeth on a sprocket don't go away because you shift out of first.

have you checked the tension in the chain?u should have no more than say a 1 1/2'' play tops in it.how does the clutch play feel?can u slip it into the friction zone without it killing itself out while u are not giving any throttle?also check ur teeth on ur sprockets should be smooth with no burrs.

i had an F4i that did that once, used to jusp hard on take off. it was my clutch springs. they were worn out and would always get stuck. you can tell it your springs are bad by putting your bike in first gear, ...while it is off. pull in the clutch and try to start it, if it moves at all then your springs need to be replaced.

check chain tension off the bike. thats what the minimum 3/4" (or 1/2") of play is for.

remember to check and lube your chain around each 600 mile mark.

a kink can be seen in the vid when you lift the chain... if the sprockets are warn they should be replaced too. Otherwise expect premature failure of the new chain.

the chain should move w all the links smoothly; when you lifted that chain one of the links didn't move and came up at an angle.

check w our sponsors for pricing.

Exclamation

bout60-80bucks plus depends on the type of chain u buy also a chain that loose WILL chew up ur sprockets i would check them again cause new chain might chew em up so once u buy new chain check every so often not only that but could start to eat up new chain which would be a never ending cycle.
