Default tuning a double bass pedal (DW 7002)

hey, i have a DW 7002 double bass pedal. i bought it used, and i believe it is slightly older, it has the single chain. it is really slow and choppy, and not "smooth" as i have felt other pedals to be. how do i tune it so it is very smooth and fast?

Can you post pics? Its probably dirty. A can of carb cleaner will blast the dirt out of the bearings, then re-lube them. Check the lowest teeth on the chains sprocket for excessive wear. The heel plate hinge may also be worn out. If you can move the foot board side to side with more than a 1/4" deflection, parts need replacing. DW is famous for cheap hinges in the rear, when it goes, lower sprocket teeth are next. I'd much rather have a single chain than a double. DW parts are available.
