So I started up my ped the other day, just to do a quick tune-up and make sure there are no huge repairs that i need to do before springtime gets here. Anyway... I went to start it up and the motor practically shoot itself loose from the frame. I'm positive no one's touched my ped and I'm also positive that it was fine when i parked it. Is this normal? I also discovered that my rear sprocket had about 1/4 inch of play in it.
I took the bike apart, fixed the sprocket and tightened the mounting bolts, it seems fine now.. but is this a normal thing that I should watch out for?
