Hey guys. So basically I just purchased a cheap 03 mostly in fair condition
Seller advertised it as. "Needs clutch soon" and. "Chain worn"

It did have 1" too much slack in the chain it's worn and I have a new one but I adjusted it to see if the chain slap noise went away and it did.
BUT now I've noticed another noise And feeling unsure if it's chain / sprocket related

So if you are. Going slow and you slightly accelerated. It's almost like a slight grinding noise with
A sort of jerky feeling. Like if your chain slips on a push bike but not quite as bad it gets better as the rpm climbs and then goes away

Will be changing the chain and rear sprocket teeth look pointed
Haven't had a look at the front yet.

Any help or ideas appreciated
