ok here's the new scenario. i broke my ped, but i didn't mean to. it was running a lot goofy (ten or so mph) at full throttle. i inspected and noticed the screw that normally has the spring on it was gone. i put a new screw in the hole and the bike was raren to go. i went (heavy about 150 lbs) so a total weight of about 290 (maybe). about two miles down the way the bike sais i have no more gas. ok. gas station. more gas and the engine humms, no it screams. too much power in the ass with all that extra weight and the bike takes off lands on the right side after throwing me around like a rag doll. the fall (i think) bent the left pedal so it strikes that metal thing the belt rides in. i have re bent the pedal but the damn thing still wants to be mean. here's the current problem, when i pedal i can get combustion to take place unfortunately if i stop so does the combustion. help i want to go home.
