It looks like everything is there. The chain is extremly loose. How does it look on the sprocket side

Looks like its all there. I think you just need to tighten the chain. 1999 Honda TRX400EX FOURTRAX EX OEM Parts, 1999 Honda TRX400EX FOURTRAX EX OEM Motorcycle Parts - BikeBandit.com

yes the chain is super loose it had a 15 tooth sprocet on the front it was wore pretty bad. the po gave me new in package 14 tooth. I put it on and havent tightened the chain yet. the smaller sproct put a little hump in the chain the chain isnt straight will it be ok or will that be a problem I pulled the chain tight and there is a slight hump where the chain comes off the front sprocket and goes over the chain guid to the back sprocket

it will over time take out front and rear sprokets but will wear them out faster rule of thumb is when its time tochange one change all like front rear andchain

One thing is for sure your missing the case saver. I would look into getting one of those. If your chain snaps the way it is you could crack the one side of the case and thats never fun. There a cheap insurance policy!

It looks like one of the links in your chain is seized and not moving freely. That's why it's not sitting on the front sprocket like it's supposed to. Your chain is dry and needs to be lubed.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
