# Q-Matic Drive

1. ### Quenton GuentherMotored Bikes Sponsor

Q-Matic drive sytem for 4-stroke motors available \$259.75 plus shipping.

The Q-Matic drive can be ordered with 3 different primary ratios, 2.62 X 1, 2.76 X 1, and 2.935 X 1. The Q-Matic employs a wedge belt primary and is trouble free and quiet. The primary belt can easily be changed if different ratios are needed.

The rear sprocket needs to be a 56 tooth [or larger] and the possible final ratios are 14.68 X 1, 15.48 X 1, and 16.43 X 1.

Here are the speeds [MPH] possible under normal operating conditions for both the high RPM [Honda, HS, etc] and low RPM motors [B & S, H.F. Lifan, etc]. The numbers reflect useage on a 26" balloon tire bicycle. 14.68 X 1 @ 7000 RPMs = 36.8 MPH, 15.48 X 1 @ 7000 RPMs = 34.9 MPH, and 16.43 X 1 @ 7000 RPMs = 32.9 MPH. On the low RPM motors the numbers look like this..... 14.68 X 1 @ 4000 RPMs = 21 MPH, 15.48 X 1 @ 4000 RPMs = 19.9 MPH, and 16.43 X 1 = 18.8 MPH.

The Q-Matic is designed to place the ratios in a "real world" scenario to allow the motor to propel the bicycle at a resonable speed without making the motor "sing" at the upper RPM range. An average rider [175 to 225 lbs]on level ground with the stock Q-Matic ratio [15.48 X 1] can cruise at 25 MPH with the motor turning at 5000 RPMs [great average on the High RPM motors such as the Honda GXH50 or the HS 142], and still have good power to climb the average hill. If a rider is heavy or steep hills or both the Q-Matic ratio of 16.43 will yeild a speed of 25 MPH @ 5300 RPMs.

Using the 16.43 X 1 ratio it is possible to reach speeds of 35 MPH @ 7500 RPMs if needed.

Please order the Q-Matic drive from the nearest Authorized EZM dealer.

Have fun,

Is it available in a kit form, including the motor? That is the one problem I have with most drives. I would like to build a bike all at once and not shop for different parts to make it work. It is not conducive to budget building.

Hi Stan4d,

The Q-Matic is the drive system, however it is part of the complete kit available from EZ motorbike dealers. It can also be purchased to replace defective drive systems from other companies.

The Q-Matic can be purchased alone or as part of the complete kit.

You are correct about it costing less if ordered as a complete kit because of shipping costs.

Have fun,
