Starter chain is being a ***** to put on.

Hey , guys sorry for the bad language but I’m fed up already. I’m trying to put on the starter chain on the my 09 rebel. I did it once and it slipped on fine. But now it’s being a ***** to put back on. I’ll provide pictures once I get home. But it’s really hard to reach and put both on at the same time not sure why

looks like either the starter clutch sprocket or chain is worn beyond spec by the way the chain sits in the sprocket

Dam I did notice it was sitting funny on the sprocket. I may need to buy a new sprocket and chain then?

did you try flipping the chain the other way?

I actually did there’s a chain link that’s silver and I faced it towards the backplate of where the sprocket rests still nothing might give it another try
