    Where can I get this? I have already ordered from Kings Sales and no luck hearing from them. Is there any other vendor selling this? I'll cut my losses but this is holding me up so I need one.
    Thanks

    Mike, thanks. I found a local MB vendor who ordered me a 40t for my set up. Should pick up today.
    Still been calling the a-hole Andrew at Kings sprocket sales and no answer but he's obviously clearing his voicemail so wonder if he caller IDs me now. I typically just let the voice mail message run till it ends, however long it be.
    I'm hoping to do trip up his way this Summer and will go out of my way to make a visit. It's only $100 but right now it's the principle. I wonder if it's too late to dispute the charge from November. I'm an idiot for holding out and believing him each time.
    Thanks for the help

    Called and said they had but when I went in they did not. How does this mount to a disk rotor? Place disk over and bolt through disk, then adapter? How can I tell if hole pattern is same?

    Hi Mike,
    It would help to post some pics of your bike and engine setup.
    Depending on where you disc brake bosses on the frame are, you may not even be able to keep a direct drive chain line and disc lineup of the same side.

    I have never tried one, if the bike has a disc brake it has gears so I just jackshaft the drive to right side.
    No messing with the brake and you have gears for your engine ;-}

    This the Fito Medina 7-speed dual disc bike.

    Here is another with some mods.

    That is a Fito Modena bike, I just replaced the front fork with nice shock fork and the 7-speed derailleur with an Internal 3-speed disc hub.

    The point is the same, leave your bikes disc be and use the right side for drive and extra added super double bonus of gears ;-}

    image.jpeg image.jpeg image.jpeg When fitting a disc brake hub adaptor you may have to make a custom brake calliper adaptor to get correct alignment because of the extra offset of having the sprocket there, see pics or do what KCvale said and get a jack shift kit

    Of course I would have to make a custom piece, have with everything else so far! lol
    I don't think one thing has bolted right on without modification yet! :)
    I don't want to go jack shaft yet. having enough trouble with everything else and have already spent a pretty penny.

    Thanks

    I know the feeling!
    Hahaha o ordered two spare rear disc brake caliper mounts and some durafix/duralloy braising rods for aluminium. And put a couple stainless steel bolts through where they are supposed to mount on the bike so that they sat square and flush and braised the small gap between them.
    Then I just filed, sanded and dremel tooled the new double wide adaptor plate on the inside to get it to about the right offset. Hope that helps pm me if you want more pics/details

    Universal fit means it universally fits nothing! lol

    Hehehe, pretty true.

    Mike, I don't see any way to shove a direct drive 2-stroke engine sprocket on the left on that bike and keep your disc brake.

    Giant makes great bikes, but maybe you should think tire-rubbing small engine for powering it if you want to keep the disc brake.

    It's not easy but definitely doable KC image.jpeg

    Cool, if the chains runs past your tire and inline with your engine sprocket.

    Yeah I actually had to use the washers on the M10 bolts to get the correct chain line,
    as pictured above is almost %100 perfect. There is very little clearance with the bolt heads on the brake rotor so I did have to grind them down just slightly.

    Way to go!
    Mission Accomplished.
