i bought a 80cc 2 stroke kit on eBay and put it on a spare bike of mine, i put the engine on the bike and everything hooked up,only to realise but the derailor is stuffed, it slips the the chain of the wheel sprocket after about 2 seconds of peddling, is there a different way to start the bike such as a kickstart or could i just roll down a hill, (btw i have not started it yet )(i am very new to motorised bikes)

regards,harry

Hiya Harry and Welcome to the Forums :)

You can find a nice gear to peddle in and take the deraileur off if you absolutely need to as long as you
shrten the chain to take up the slack withpout the deraileur.

Also, you can just go down a long hill and pop the clutch.

You can even use a drill to start your engine, i thunk somewhere on here there are links to the piece needed.

Or you can adjust the thing lol you have a few choices.


Ride Safe! :cool:

Put the bike up on a block or kickstand and spin the wheel until the motor starts popping then pull the clutch in my neighbor did it all the time. Fix the chain though
