Hello!

I am pondering buying this kit, it has the motor I've wanted.

has anyone had experience with this set up/kit?

i figure it comes with everything I need as it is over $400 additional above the motor price

I've been in contact with the guy from the site, as I'm confused what it comes with and if it comes with a rack to mount it on my bike.

He said
"If your asking about the tadpole trike, no the "rack" is not included. That's a outside drive kit."

Does inside mean between the bike frame and outside on the rear?
Could someone post pictures of an outside and inside drive kit?

I think inside/outside describes whether the drive sprocket is inside or outside of the gearing cover. I could be wrong though.

I'm not clear on the question but Staton makes his gear box with the drive on the right or left side, depending on how you want to mount it. My experience has been that the kits come with all required parts, unless I'm confused about your application.

Inside drive means the drive sprocket coming out of the gearbox is on the same side as the engine. This setup makes mounting the kit a bit harder but should center the weight over your rear tire better. The outside drive means the output from the gearbox is on the opposite side of the engine. The gearbox is centered directly over the rear wheel and the engine hangs off the right side of the bike. Its said the outside drive is easier to mount to the bike and align, but you'd have to attach a saddlebag or something to the left side of the rack in order to even out the weight of the engine hanging off the right. Overall I like the staton kits, they may not be the nicest looking things out there but they're definitely tough as heck and other than the gearbox you can find all the other parts (including the engine) from just about anywhere. Personally I'd choose a more compact engine as the honda50 seems kind of large to be on the rack with the gearbox. Maybe go for the honda35 or the mitsubishi43 (2stroke) but whatever floats your boat dude :) Tell me how it turns out I really think staton could make some improvements as far as weight is concerned but other than that their rackmount systems rock.

Make sure you get your questions answered and everything is understood before you make your purchase. I've had some difficulty with this vendor. Quick response when you are sending them money, but not so good for other correspondence.
