    Alright, so I've had my motor bike kit for over a month now, and I've been too scared to start on it cause I'm afraid I'm gonna break something. Anyways I'm ready to start trying but I've run into a problem. In the instructions I received, I'm pretty sure that it says I may need to enlarge the hole around the sprocket so it will fit around my rear wheel bearing housing, and touch the spokes. Am I understanding this correctly?

    Can the sprocket just fit around the end of the circular housing, or does it actually need to be up right next to the spokes. Please help!

    hi; its just metal. yes you have to enlarge the hole. i bought a dremel and went round and round, voila . you will find many uses for a dremel. quit looking at it, hit it with a hammer. you will find many uses for a hammer.
