either your running too lean and the engine is starving for fuel or your glow plug is going bad.

i am yet to completely ruin a sper gear. the only reason i changed it out once is because i changed to a new clutch bell and it wouldnt not mesh right. and get this my bearing i made wore out and im still using the stocker.

you just gotta use proper english(lol) and set the mess right and tightn the heck out of those screws.

no problem .. mak sur ur gear mesh is ok. U shouldn't go thru so many spur gears if your mesh is right and you have upgraded clutchbell.
