thanks man. i bought a used f4 off of a guy and i tried just about everything to get it back to original but just couldn't get it clean. it has kind of a film on it and some tar all up by the rear shock and the motor looks ok but it could use some cleaning too. this is def. cleaning it up to look like new is my number one "mod" to do this winter. thanks again.

Prioritizing and time management. If you keep up with it, its not too bad.

Where did you get those spacers to keep from squishing the o-rings?

Those spacers come with EK Chains (not to be confused with RK Chains). I've used EK Chains for several years. I like the color selection.

Does anybody recomend a certain brand of chain or sprockets? I'm pretty new to the chain drive world and don't know too much about quality and type in this area

Vortex sprockets are good, but stay away from aluminum unless you're building a race bike. Alu wears out too quickly for it to be worth your streeability loss.

For chains, EK, RK, DID, Regina are some of the better brands
