    Hey welcome here. I suppose the thing about these chinese engines is that you can basically fit one on a bike in an afternoon and with the correct modifications you can make them reliable. There's a lot of discussion about this on the forum as you will see!

    my first try was with a friction drive chainsaw using the clutch bell against the tire. it worked but it was a small chainsaw and the bell was to big. had to peddle up to speed and the motor was'nt quite powerful enough to maintain speed. basicaly it just made me coast farther. thought about a larger chainsaw or removing the clutch but then decided to try one of these kits. there not bad little motors they just need a little refinement.
