Ok have the full white brothers exhaust that sounds great. and pulled the cover off the air filter looks to be aftermarket with some kind of slip on cover, as for the cam is that a hard job or what...My main concern is the chain and sprockets right now as the chain snapped a link yesterday on the mountain so looking for some suggestions as to what to go with and where to get it....come on MOOSE i know you got some ideas..

Well renthal sprockets are supposed to be good.As for teeth I wouldn't go to far from stock because then you'll loose power.And buy a o ring chain if possible.You don't have to oil it nearly as much.And the cam thing is a pretty decent sized job.Ask moose.

Well if your looking for top-end then you will want a 14 tooth front and between a 36 and 38 rear I would definitely go with an O-ring Chain Stay away from the cheapies on EBAY Moose racing...HEH HEH HEH not trying to promote here... has some good sprockets and chains.

As far as replacing the cam? well that's about an hour job to the novice but don't let that deter you we are here and can help you anyway we can. on a stock bottom I wouldn't go anymore than a webcam 245 grind. goo powerband throughout the whole spectrum.

Make sure you clean and lube the o-ring chain every time you ride. If you don't dirt will cut the o-rings up and it won't last too long.

OK :partsin01: so got all the parts installed the moose racing 14t front sprocket and 36t rear sprocket with an rk o-ring chain also replaced the guide roller. took off the airbox cover since i am running a k&n with an outerwears cover, but the bad part went to change the rear brake pads and the caliper would not go all the way in, i did notice the kid i bought it from engineered his own e-brake block off plate so i ordered the right one(i dont believe in presidential solutions) does anyone have an idea for the rear brake issue or should i just get a caliper, oh and the rear rotor seams to be a bit warped might change that as well if anyone can point me to a decent priced one found them new for around $100.00 but hell i can get my cam for that much...

Was you using a C-clamp or brake tool to push the piston in? Did you try loosening the bleeder screw, before pushing the piston back into the caliber? It will make it a lot easier to push in. When it goes all the way in, tighten your bleeder screw back, before the piston comes back out so you won't get air in the lines.
