    Hi All

    I want to use a Cag pocket motor to build a powered cycle.
    What I need to make this easy is a primary drive reduction unit that will just bolt on the centrifugal clutch mounting. Need to have about a 3:1 reduction.
    Does anyone know of something like this that is available.

    Just curious, but what's a "Cag pocket motor"?

    Regarding a 3:1 reduction unit that will fit a centrifugal clutch, here's one shown on Fleabay:

    I've got a couple of these that I don't plan to use. Internally they are a just a chain and sprocket with grease in a sealed case. They do not use gears.

    The ones that "thescooterguy" uses in his builds are 5:1 units that have gears in oil. I've got a couple of scooters that have these same 5:1 reduction units as he uses. Both of mine have seen some use and have quite a bit of gear whine.

    The 3:1 that you speak of allows the drive to be on the disc brake side, correct?

    Does the 5:1 that thescooterguy uses reverse the drive for the gearing side of the frame?
