Actually, I just realized, you may have an error in the name of the pedal...
There is a pedal called the Flying Dragon, but there is also a pedal called the Yamaha
DFP-9310. The DFP is the double pedal, the FP is the single. The Flying Dragon IS a Direct Drive.
If you don't have a DD, I don't think your pedal is a Flying Dragon. If you did have a Flying Dragon, I don't think you would be having a problem with this because the problem is the chain attached under the footboard on the 9310.
