Is this really where this topic ended! :eek:

A jackshaft can transfer the power from one side to the other, example, your motor's drive cog is on the left, connect this via chain to the jackshaft which runs to the other side of the bike and your right side chain. Can also be used to move the chain out to clear a wide rear tyre.
