Hi all,
I am not much of a mechanic but I managed install a 80cc motor that i ordered off ebay on my old mountain bike. the only problem is the sprocket from the engine is way to stiff to allow the back wheel to move. This is the only thing keeping me from cranking her up! What have I done or is there something I am missing?

Clutch in or clutch out? That is, can you turn the wheel with the lever out? Is the cable adjusted correctly so when you pull the lever in, the clutch is disengaged?

yeah, joe, this is the 2nd one like this, it has to be an install problem.

ander1ch, check this out for starters: http://www.motoredbikes.com/viewtopic.php?t=1501

browse & search the forums for answers, too.

if you don't find what you're looking for, start a new topic in tech/mech or general discussion.

I figured it out, I did not thread the clutch wire through the guide on the top of the motor before i connected it to the arm.
