Why does Chain keep coming off Go-Kart?
Over time, the teeth on the sprockets of a go-kart will begin to wear down due to the friction of the chain driving the sprockets. Once this happens the teeth of the sprocket are not properly sized for the chain and as a result, the chain can completely disconnect from the sprocket.
Can a Go-Kart chain be too tight?
If the chain is too tight, there will be too much tension, which can not only cause damage and extreme wear on the chain and the gears, but it will also slow your kart down. If your chain has too much tension, the rear axle will have difficulty rotating due to the friction between the chain and the sprocket.
