    I'm glad to see someone doing this and making it work...Congrats!
    Who's shifter kit did you use? You know we need to see pictures. Is it an auto-clutch or not, as that has legal implications in some places? If this is answered in another thread, how about some linkage?

    Well, I played around with my jackshaft kit today but it's still way too cold out there.
    So far everything fit like it was supposed to. Took very little filing of the motor slag to make it fit.
    One thing I'm hoping to get a little help with is the part where the instructions say to file the side cover bolt holes off to make it easier to remove the cover if you ever want to adjust the clutch.
    I don't understand why doing this would be better in any way. The way I see it, the supplied Alan bolts fit right in and an Alan key would make removing these three bolts very easy. Am I missing something that will only come forward as the kit is installed?

    There are 2 methods for mounting. If you do method 2 you need to grind so you can apply a wrench to the nuts to take off the clutch cover

    Thanks, So I guess the idea is to screw the Alan bolts in from the back creating "studs" that those nuts can go on to hold the cover into place. I'm just going to take my time with this but so far it seems to be a well thought out kit, everything fits so well.

    You got it! If you don't do the clutch cover mod, there really isn't a way to get to/hold the nuts on the inside. It's well worth it to mod the cover and not so difficult as it looks.

    I'm beginning to understand now and will do it. I like how you have slotted the holes now. Mine lined up perfectly! Thanks for the fast trouble free shipping Pablo, I was VERY happy with the whole deal. The freewheel crank seems nice and tight as well, there is no slop at all. Do they last a long time?

    Your freewheel will need periodic lubrication. We have some instructions on how to do it on our download page.

    "not so difficult" As long as you have a way to get at the head of the bolt LOL

    As far as the insturctions go they are great. It is best to read through them all the way at least once. I didn't follow the order they were in but I was starting with a whole new setup. Some day I will figure out a way to get the chain on that does not involve barking my hands up. The only thing I left to do on the it is put on the chain cover, but I am not ready for that I am still pondering a mod to the electrical system. I also am designing a back rack that is light, strong and cheap.

    Oh yeah customer service is good too
