    I started a thread a while back about removing lowering kit from my scoot to make it ride softer for my girl.
    And when I first joined I asked about compensator sprockets,over the last couple months I replaced the compensator ,sprocket, chain,adjuster,removed lowering kit adjusted shocks got the ride back without noticeable ride height change. Having said all this as I was finishing up shock adjustment I looked at my final drive belt and drat it it has teeth(if thats what you call them) missing. So now I need to tear it all down again to replace. So I guess the moral of the story is as long as you have something tore down don't get wrapped up in that problem only inspect everything in that area.

    This time you pull it all apart it'll be quicker and easier as a lot of the work is fresh in your mind and its been apart recently
    i know its a pain but there is no substitute for experience and you've just climbed a bit higher in the experience stakes
