I have a pop sound only in 1st gear. Chain has 1 1/2 play in it. Any suggestions?

Might be your chain jumping teeth on the sprocket or you might have bad axle bearings - check the bearings first and if good, readjust the chain - also inspect the sprockets for damaged teeth

Adjust your chain this way: compress the suspension so the engine counter shaft, the swing arm pivot and the rear axle are in a straight line, spin the rear wheels to find the tightest point in the chain, then adjust the chain for 1/2 to 5/8 inch of play 1/2 way between the sprockets

Thank you.

I'll check that tonight and see what I get. It almost sounds as if it's coming from inside the gear box but i haven't been in there yet.
