When you pushed up on the chain from the bottom........its only supposed to move ~1". Jesus you're probably skipping teeth. You could try taking the slack out by moving the rear wheel back (if you know how to do this) but its likely your chain is shot.

what he said and you might have missing teeth from that jump then grab on the sprocket. that breaks teeth easy. get all new. like no two fingerprints are the same no two chain and sprockets wear the same. so you really shouldnt mix up used sprockets with new chain. they all need to be replaced at once.

Dude, seriously, that chain is awful. You could see the links binding in your video. And, yes, it's loose as . But, you need a new chain... pronto. People tend to replace chains and sprockets at the same time. It's widely recommended.

The bike trying to move a little on start does not have to mean the springs are bad. The clutch adjustment can do that also. The wheels will turn with the clutch pulled in.
I just wanted to put that out there.

I just had to say it. I would hate for someone to think its a huge deal if it happened to them. My bike did it after a clutch replacement and I almost my pants. I thought about it fro a sec. and realized the adjustment would be different due to the new clutch.
